Actions Speak Louder Than Words: Use Your Lips To Speak To Your Sweetheart Instead Of Your Wallet

Why I encourage you to kiss thoroughly, at least three times daily:
  • Kissing stabilizes cardiovascular activity, decreases high blood pressure, and lowers cholesterol.
  • Kissing prevents cavities and plaque build-up by stimulating saliva production while preventing gingivitis through the calcium present in saliva.
  • Kissing stimulates over 30 facial muscles which smoothes out skin and increase blood circulation to the face.
  • Kissing burns 12 calories per five-second episode and three passionate kisses a day will help you lose one pound!
  • Kissing prevents the formation of the stress hormone glucocorticoids which causes high blood pressure, muscle weakening and insomnia.
  • Kissing does its part to vaccinate people from new germs. Saliva contains bacteria, 80% of them are common to all people with 20% unique to each person. By sharing saliva with a partner, you are stimulating your immune system to respond to the different bacteria you are being exposed to. The result is that your immune system creates certain anti-bodies to these new bacteria, which in effect vaccinates you against these germs. This process is called cross-immunotherapy.
  • Finally, you may not be surprised to know that kissing offers an express analysis of genetic compatibility. While you are kissing, your brain conducts instant chemical analysis of your partner's saliva and issues a "verdict" of your genetic compatibility. Think about it. Don't you know much more about what you like or don't like in a person after one kiss? And kissing is much more fun than taking a relationship inventory!
Oh, and kissing also cures hiccups!
