Looks like a technique called “oil pulling”(Sensationalist article) is trending on Google. What are your thoughts on the claims people make of it?
Does it have a chance of improving oral health?
What makes oil pulling effective? According to its advocates, swishing the oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes eventually gets bacteria to cling to the oil. When the oil is spit out, so too are the toxins that are harmful to your body.
I have doubts on the magical properties of curing diabetes, etc that are mentioned, but I’m intrigued about the oral health aspect of it.
