Where Did Our Teeth Come From?


Our teeth are pretty amazing things, aren’t they? But have you ever stopped to think about just how fascinating they really are? They’re exposed bones that grow in, fall out and then grow in again. They finish developing when we're in our teens, but with proper care can last the entire rest of our life. The same teeth we get at around age 6 will be with us until we’re 96. Think of all the smiles they’ll make and foods they’ll chew in that time. When you really put it into perspective, teeth are incredible – but believe it or not, they’re even cooler than you may have realized. Teeth and their fascinating history are the subject of a new TED-Ed video by Pete Unger titled "How Did Teeth Evolve?"

Enamel Defects May Uncover Unknown Celiac Disease

Celiac disease has been a much-discussed topic in recent years, despite its relatively low occurrence in the general population.  Though only about one percent of Americans suffer from this serious, genetic autoimmune disorder, the name celiac disease has become synonymous with the "gluten free," diet movement, which has spurned an entire market of gluten-free products. But while many people who choose a gluten-free lifestyle claim to be ‘gluten-sensitive’ or even believe they have celiac disease, many more who have the disorder may not even realize they have it – until now.
