Tuesday Turnip

David K. Israel

It's time for another whimsical Tuesday Turnip search wherein I type a random phrase and we see what kind of interesting factoids "turn-up."

For all you would-be dentists/dental hygienists out there, today I typed in "Four out of five dentists" unearthing the following curious tidbits:

Pfizer, maker of LISTERINE, sues Proctor & Gamble over claim that four out of five dentists would recommend CREST mouthwash, in the Southern District of NY. Four Out of Five Dentists Say More Men Suffer From Bad Breath Than Women Four out of five dentists recommend the ADA for their peers who join organizations. The American Dental Association is the oldest and largest dental association in the world representing more than 155,000 dentists or seven out of 10 (nearly four out of five). 4 OUT OF 5 TEXAS DENTISTS ADVOCATE THE DEATH PENALTY (heh heh) September 15, 2005  Henry Kornhauser, an adman for 50 years and originator of the claim "Four out of five dentists recommend Trident," died yesterday after a 10-month struggle with the progressive neurological disease myasthenia gravis. He was 73. Four out of five dentists do not have sufficient savings and investments to "retire comfortably." One in three dentists will fail to sell one of their most valuable assets - their practice.
