National Flossing Council Video Shows Why Flossers Should Just Say "I Don't Care"

Floss is a great tooth cleaning tool. A new video encourages flossers to say "I Don't Care" that science research hasn't proven it and to celebrate National Flossing Day (Nov. 25, 2016) with Happy Flossing!

America’s leading organization for the promotion and advocacy of flossing – The National Flossing Council (NFC) – released a new video showing why flossers don't care whether science has proven how good flossing can be!

Just Say “I Don't Care”:

The 90sec video explains that it's easy to see what a great tool floss is when teeth need cleaning. Clean teeth look great and won't contribute to bad breath. Research into the long term effects of flossing will take a lot of time and money. Meanwhile flossers can just say “I don't care” if the science isn't there!

All Americans are encouraged to floss on National Flossing Day (NFD), November 25, 2016, and say Happy Flossing to other flossers. The video also introduces a new Flossing Day song to encourage people to wish each other “Happy Flossing.” NFD is held each year on the day after Thanksgiving.

NFC President, Dr. Armand Lione, commented on the video. “We're happy that an investigative journalist questioned the science behind floss' effectiveness. On NFD 2011 we issued a White Paper (”Spinning Floss Facts into Fictions”(attached)) that had similar goals.” Dr Lione said. “But when it comes to day to day flossing, “We Don't Care” about science research when we want to floss and clean our teeth!”
