Holding on to your teeth

I'm always gathering data on how to make it to the finish line with all parts intact. Information from the Leisure World Study--can you imagine living in a community with that name?--suggests that estrogen therapy helps women hang on to their teeth.

This study of nearly 9,000 old ladies in the Laguna Hills of southern California found that those women who reported long term use of estrogen were more likely to have their own teeth a decade or more after the study began. They were also one-third less likely to lose their minds to Alzheimer's Disease.
