Hello everyone, I never knew verbal bullying (VB) could have an adverse effect on children's oral health in addition to the obvious psychological trauma. A recent Brazilian study showed children who suffer from VB exhibit bite problems such as severe misalignment of upper teeth and an increase in the number of tooth nerve exposures. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.adaj.2020.02.001

I received these air quality tips from my friend Kathleen Pratt which I am passing on.

Yesterday, the map showed AQI in the 150-250 range throughout parts of the Bay Area, the range that indicates it's dangerous for people without medical conditions. https://www.purpleair.com/map?opt=1/mAQI/a10/cC0#7.8/37.52/-121.887 (I've been told some people are not seeing the AQIs loading, which might mean their servers are overloaded with people checking).


If you must go outside during the fires, and have access to one, please wear a NIOSH-rated mask, like an N-95 or P-100. If your mask has valves, it will not protect others from COVID-19 if you are an asymptomatic carrier—to help with this you can wear a cloth mask over the valves, or a COVID-19 safe-mask (like a cloth mask or surgical mask) underneath, so long as it still gives you a good fit. If you do this with a cloth mask, make sure you are washing it after every use—this is something hopefully you are already doing with cloth masks due to COVID-19.
N95s masks are only good for 1-2 days worth of continuous outdoor wear in this air. In COVID terms, reusing your mask is okay, so long as you can properly disinfect it (by either treating it or letting it "air out" about 72 hours). However, letting the N-95 mask "air out" when there are toxins from wildfire smoke in the air means that the masks will be continuously filtering those toxins making them less effective over time. A solution I have seen is to "air them out" for COVID-19 in a room that is well-sealed from smoke and has air filtration.

Here's a helpful thread on mask safety by my friend Urvi, including info about mask fit: https://twitter.com/theurv/status/1295998569896271874?s=21.

Attached an image showing what the different ratings of the masks mean and what they will protect you from with regard to fires (not necessarily COVID-19).

Smoke Protection & Immune Health

Some more info about protecting yourself from smoke, paraphrased from information shared on Facebook by Kiran Nigam in 2018:

The smoke in our air is not just wood smoke. "Wildfire" is a misnomer. The things that have been burning are entire towns, houses, buildings, cars, plastics, containing benzene, ozone, formaldehyde and who knows what other chemicals. It contains P2.5, particles that are small enough that they can pass *directly into your blood stream* through your lungs.

All these things create an enormous burden on your liver to detoxify. The liver can get overwhelmed and your body's toxic burden goes up. That contributes to things like headaches, body aches, fever, fatigue, difficulty breathing.

The below tips are from our friend Mason (also from 2018):
Rinse your nose and gargle with salt water frequently. Eye Drops and Throat Lozenges can also be helpful. Mullein, Mugwort, and Eucalyptus are good herbal remedies to support lung health.

Protect your immune system and if you're prone to allergies preventative doses of Benadryl, Claritin etc. may be necessary. Shower and wash your clothes after being outdoors.

Staying hydrated and indoors with ventilated rooms and securely sealed windows is crucial.

Brain fog is real. Be safe and vigilant, people will be disorientated, sleepy, slow to react.

Mutual Aid & Resources
It's also a good time to check on folks who are immunocompromised and/or have breathing-related medical conditions, as well as unhoused folks. Bring folks water. Here's an idea for unhoused folks' mutual aid: https://twitter.com/ihatejoelkim/status/1294327924401692672

Here's a list of government resources for folks who are affected by the fires: https://response.ca.gov/resources.html

How to Swish Vigorously!

How Swishing Water (Vigorously) Can Prevent Cavities!

Drinking water throughout the day not only rehydrates our bodies but can also help prevent us from getting kidney stones. Did you also know that swishing vigorously with water after each meal can have similar effects as brushing? The key here is to swish vigorously and immediately after meal.

1: Swishing can help "peel off" residual food particles from teeth

When you swish vigorously, the mechanical vibrations and water jets that go around the mouth can quite effectively dislodge most food particles from the tooth surfaces and the little crevices between teeth and under the gums.

2: Swishing can help build up and maintain facial muscle tone

As we age, our facial muscles tend to relax a bit, but vigorous swishing is like a workout that can help maintain the muscle tone. When we do 10 seconds each on the left side, the right side of the cheek, 10 seconds on the top and again on the bottom teeth for a total of 40 seconds, we increase circulations around the mouth so much that we literally feel a little “burn” from the workout!

3: Swishing can promote saliva secretion

It has been shown that mucin in saliva can help coat the enamel surfaces and slow down the decalcification process. Most people start getting cavities when they experience dry mouths. Swishing can stimulate our salivary glands and promote more saliva secretions, which equals fewer cavities!

Let’s get SWISHING!!🦷✨💦
