Coconut Oil Treated With Enzymes May Prevent Tooth Decay Coconut oil may be the latest craze in the foodiesphere, but it could also function to prevent cavities, a new study suggests. Researchers from the Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland found that enzyme-treated coconut oil -- similar to what would happen to coconut oil after it's been digested -- was able to stop the growth of cavity-causing bacteria. The finding, presented at the Society for General Microbiology's autumn conference, could lead to a new approach to dental care products, study researcher Dr. Damien Brady said in a statement. "Incorporating enzyme-modified coconut oil into dental hygiene products would be an attractive alternative to chemical additives, particularly as it works at relatively low concentrations," Brady said in the statement. The researchers conducted their study on untreated coconut oil and the enzyme-treated coconut oil. If untreated, tooth decay can lead to tooth loss and infection, according to the Mayo Clinic.

COACHING CONTRACTS & AGREEMENTS Download in PDF format Coaching is a specific profession. It is clearly different from personal development, therapy, training, consulting, analysis, etc. Consequently, professional coaching has a frame of reference, objectives, tools and means that need to be specified before starting a relationship with any specific client. This initial contract first serves to position each coach in his or her specific frame of reference and second to limit the scope of the professional relationship and thereby protect all the contracting partners. Obviously, the study of different types of contracts in diverse professional and personal situations (partnership contracts, marriage contracts, sales contracts, employment contracts, etc.) can illustrate key elements that pertain to this concept, so central to all our personal and professional lives. An initial contract helps define the scope of a professional relationship such as between any service purveyor and a client. Session Agreements What ?

AlliedSecurityTrust > Home Why does Virgin Coconut Oil Crystallize and Become Solid? Dr. Bruce Fife a.k.a. “Dr. Coconut” answers two of the most often asked questions about coconut oil. I have purchased the same brand of coconut oil for many months. Normally the oil is very creamy and smooth. This is a very common experience and has nothing to do with the quality of the oil. Fats and oils are composed of fat molecules known as fatty acids. The melting point of coconut oil is generally quoted as being 76 degrees F (24 C). The melting point of coconut and other oils is determined by the fatty acid content. The triglycerides in coconut oil consist of a mixture of 10 different fatty acids. In addition to degree of saturation, size of the fatty acid also influences the melting point. Therefore, each of the 10 fatty acids in coconut oil have their own unique melting points. Because of the various melting points of the different fatty acids and triglycerides, oils normally do not have a sharp or precise melting point. There is nothing wrong with the oil.

Whole Tree taking a wholly different approach | NCIIA Baylor University E-Team building a business from the bottom up A standard approach to dealing with problems in the developing world is to develop a specific solution to a specific problem: if people lack access to potable water, you develop a water filter for them to buy and use. Need lighting? Manufacture and sell solar lamps. The challenge, of course, is identifying products that a) US markets want in large quantities, and b) can be supplied by people in the developing world. That was precisely the challenge facing Baylor engineering professor Walter Bradley a few years ago, when he and post-doctoral student John Pumwa sat down and tried to figure out how to help the rural poor in Pumwa’s home country of Papua New Guinea and countries like it. Their solution? The resource they hit on? It’s not as nutty as it sounds. Bradley and his team set out to increase that number. None of the products were quite up to snuff, however. That’s right: the coconut car. 1.
