“You don’t know what you are doing until you see that tissue flapped open, and you see it’s still there.”
“It was Dr. Paul Keyes’ research that led to knowing what bugs did what.”
“Having the patient look in that microscope and see things really moving is a powerful tool.”
“Baking Soda right out of the box has an RDA of 7.”
“In 1911 they were selling it [baking soda] in little bags to whiten teeth.”
