Kissing is Good for your 'Health'






5 reasons why:


1. Kissing is good for the teeth

This is due to the fact that kissing stimulates saliva production, which in turn can wash harmful bacteria off the teeth and reduce plaque buildup. (source Mathew Messina, D.D.S., WebMD) 
2.Kissing burns calories
Kissing makes you burn from two to six calories a minute  and you also get to do some facial muscles which can make a big difference when it comes to the appearance of frown lines.(source, Daily Mail)
3. Kissing boosts immunity
Researchers believe that, when it comes to a pregnant woman, kissing is a way to introduce the virus to a woman in small doses before she conceives, enabling her body to build up a resistance to it before she could pass it on to a child. Though, keep in mind that if your partner is visibly ill, you might catch diseases by kissing, like mono, strep throat and herpes. In that case, just do not kiss your partner.

4. Kissing eases stress
According to a small study in 2009 which measured levels of the bonding hormone oxytocin and the stress hormone cortisol in pairs of kissing, both men and women experienced a decline in cortisol, which is a sign of relaxation. This hormone was greater than when just holding hands.  (source the AP)
5. Kissing could ease allergy symptoms
This applies only to seasonal allergies and not something contagious. According to a small Japanese study, couples that kiss for 30 minutes have lower levels of allergen-specific IgE, which are the proteins that trigger allergy symptoms, like sneezing and sniffling. (MSN)
