Jaws: The Story of a Hidden Epidemic
There’s a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways?
Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.
“Jaws: The Story of a Hidden Epidemic is a well-researched book providing unique overview and insight in to a healthcare problem frequently overlooked by child healthcare professionals. Sleep is likely as important to health and well-being as food, but receives little attention. This book is an important read for all professionals who care for children. It also asks questions for possible future research in the field of pediatric obstructive sleep disordered breathing.” (Stephen H. Sheldon author of Principles and Practice of Pediatric Sleep Medicine)
“This epidemic has important consequences for heart health. I’m delighted Jaws is bringing it home to both citizens and health care professionals.” (Dr. John S. Schroeder, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine Stanford University)
“Every parent wants their child to grow strong and healthy. Orthodontics chosen for your child can be the most important choice to give a structural foundation to health. Sandra and Paul present important information that any parent should know about in order to give their children the cranial facial structure for beauty and health. This is a brilliant work by two brilliant scientists.” (Mark Abrahamson Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine)
