Clear Thinking?
Have Clean Teeth

Apparently good oral health equals better thinking, so says this news story
The study based on adults aged 60 and older found those with the highest levels of the gum disease-causing pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis were three times more likely to have trouble recalling a three-word sequence after a period of time.
So, break out that toothbrush and floss.  Not only have people more willing to spend time in your presence, but improve your short-term memory as well.

All we need now is a political knowledge survey that also asks questions about oral hygiene to see if indeed there is a link.
