The harder you bite, the longer you live?
from The Wall Street Journal
The force of a man’s bite at age 70 may be a marker of his longevity, says a study in the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation. The risk of dying before reaching their mid-80s was 84 percent higher in men with a weaker bite than those with a stronger bite, the study found. The association was significant even when such factors as tooth loss and severe gum disease were included in the analysis.
