    Please Stop Helping Us - How...

    Why is it that so many efforts by liberals to lift the black underclass not only fail, but often harm the intended beneficiaries?In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor—and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.Please Stop Helping Us lays bare these counterproductive results. People of goodwill want to see more black socioeconomic advancement, but in too many instances the current methods and approaches aren’t working. Acknowledging this is an important first step.

    A New Revolutionary Breakthrough In Dental Health
     
    Can you regrow teeth? That’s the question you’re probably wondering.
     
    The answer is...yes...but not in the way you may think. Let’s put it this way, your body can’t grow back a new tooth like it would for a piece of hair, nail, or skin layer that naturally replaces itself. However, a tooth can be regrown on a surface level which is known as “tooth remineralization.”
     
    What is tooth remineralization? It’s the regrowth process of restoring vital minerals and adding back layers to your teeth to make them stronger, bigger, and more solidly whole again.
     
    Your teeth will naturally weaken over time due to continuous use and even abuse (e.g., using your teeth as a tool to open things), overexposure to unhealthy diets high in sugar, poor oral hygiene from neglect of regular tooth brushing and mouth cleaning, etc.—resulting in all-too-common tooth decay, cavities, gum diseases, and other dental problems.
     
    The reality is that you only get one set of teeth in your life (excluding baby teeth). If you fail to take care of the teeth you have now, you’re going have to spend thousands of dollars and up for expensive dental works later down the road.
     
    On the other hand, if you’re one of the few who takes up the practice of manually performing tooth remineralization as soon as possible—you can restore your teeth back to its healthy natural state and keep them for life.
     
    Here’s what you will discover inside “Tooth Regrowth”:
     
    * The NASA-developed toothpaste used by astronauts to remineralize teeth.
     
    * The oldest medicinal system in the world to restore your pearly whites.
     
    * The natural herbal approach to rejuvenate the regrowth process in your mouth.
     
    * The most potent way to get your calcium intakes for building strong teeth.
     
    * The connective-tissue acid to fight periodontitis and reverse receding gums.
     
    ...and that’s simply scratching the surface of tooth remineralization.
     
    Don’t let your teeth deteriorate to the point where it’s too late to fix the problem that you could have prevented or fixed yourself. Pick up “Tooth Regrowth” now to remineralize your teeth and reclaim a healthy shiny smile that you can be proud of.

    “Today, people are returning to natural diets in order to live healthier and happier lives—the hallmarks of ‘wellness’—and science has been validating the benefits. One of the natural foods being rediscovered is the coconut. Although vilified as a cause of heart disease, coconut oil has always shown itself to be a healthy and curative oil. Numerous studies using the tools of modern science are finally revealing—and validating—the beneficial effects of coconut oil.”— From the Prologue
