Speaking to Daily Express, he said: “Soak the garment in lemon juice and use the blunt edge of a knife to scrape away excess gum.  “Wash your garment in the washing machine immediately to prevent the lemon juice from changing the colour of your clothes.  “Alternatively, for dark coloured items, if you fancy trying a different condiment to combat gum, you can also use mayonnaise.

    Scientists have developed a chewing gum they say can trap COVID-19 in saliva, reducing symptoms and lowering the risk of passing the virus on.   The gum contains a plant-grown protein which traps the SARS-CoV-2 virus inside saliva, which slows transmission not just from person to person but also from cell to cell in patients.  That protein is normally used by COVID to enter the cells on infecting a person. But by replicating it, scientists at the Penn School of Dental Medicine have been able to confine the virus to the mouth of a person chewing the gum.   The treatment was developed by a team led by Dr. Henry Daniell of the Penn School of Dental Medicine, with help from scientists at the Perelman School of Medicine and the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine.  Researchers are preparing to launch the first clinical trial, and hope the gum could serve as a low-cost and easy to use option for fighting Covid-19. 'We are already using masks and other physical barriers to reduce the chance of transmission,' Daniell told Penn Today, 'This gum could...

    Dental appointments are ever harder to come by. The pandemic backlog, coupled with a shortage of dentists, means that patients in some areas of the country are facing agonising delays for crucial treatments. Calls to emergency dentists have shot up 452 per cent since last year in some parts of the UK, according to the NHS users’ watchdog Healthwatch.  The British Dental Association has warned of a postcode lottery for treatment, with patients in certain areas forced to wait up to a year for an urgent tooth extraction. And with surveys showing that 40 per cent of dentists are considering taking early retirement in the next year, the problem will only get worse. If ever there was a time to look after your oral health at home, and avoid trips to the dentist, it’s now. The good news is that most dental problems are entirely preventable. Gum disease affects almost half of Britons and is the precursor to the majority of oral health conditions.  If ever there was a time to look after your oral health at home, and avoid...
    Jonathan Toebbe had previously maintained that his wife had no knowledge of his attempted espionage. But as part of his plea, he said in court on Monday that he "conspired with Diana Toebbe." Authorities claim that in June 2021, after an undercover FBI agent sent $10,000 in cryptocurrency to Toebbe as a "good faith" payment, Toebbe and his wife traveled to West Virginia to perform a "dead drop" at a prearranged location. There, Toebbe left an SD card with sensitive information about U.S. submarine nuclear reactors inside a peanut butter sandwich, while his wife allegedly acted as a lookout. The agent followed up by sending Toebbe $20,000 in cryptocurrency, after which Toebbe sent the agent a decryption key for the SD card. A similar scenario played out two more times over the next several months, according to authorities. On one occasion in August. the agent sent Toebbe $70,000 in cryptocurrency after he concealed another SD card in a pack of chewing gum. "Among the secrets the U.S. government most zealously protects are those related to the design of its nuclear-powered...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Slowing the spread of COVID-19, one chew at a time. “We are pretty excited to get this to the finish line,” Henry Daniell, a scientist at the University of Pennsylvania. READ MORE: Feds Award Over $2M To Police Forensic Departments In Maryland To Help Relieve BacklogResearchers at the university have created a chewing gum laced with a plant-grown protein found in lettuce, capable of “trapping” and neutralizing the virus. “Only when we put this viral trap protein it works,” said Daniell. “We are able to completely abolish the virus 95%.” Scientists say the specially treated gum can lower the viral load in saliva, so an infected person is less likely to transmit COVID to someone else. “The protein in the gum blocks the entry of the virus into the human cells,” said Daniell.

But as it turns out, there's a simple way to forget a dreaded song, according to a doctor, who revealed chewing gum will get the job done in seconds. 2Getting a song stuck in your head is known as earwormsCredit: Getty Australian scientist Dr Karl Kruszelnicki says the phenomenon, known as earworms, affects 92 per cent of all adults, and in some cases can leave someone with the same song "stuck in their head" for days. Dr Karl, who has degrees in medicine and biomedical engineering, said chewing gum is the quickest and simplest way to distract your brain, and make it forget the song that you've hearing.
