Crooked Teeth May Make You Die Earlier

If you have crooked teeth, or a misaligned jaw as a kid it could end up making you die earlier.

Previous studies have shown this type of stress makes children more susceptible to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer later in life. After analysing data from 6,654 children, researchers found that one in four had such asymmetries. (Daily Mail)¬†
