Oldest Human Teeth

Why should you brush and floss every day? Because you never know who is going to take a CT scanner to your teeth one day! I just thought this was fascinating and wanted to share it. Teeth that could evidence a human twice as old as the oldest human remains previously found is pretty neat.

“A Tel Aviv University team excavating a cave in central Israel said teeth found in the cave are about 400,000 years old and resemble those of other remains of modern man, known scientifically as Homo sapiens, found in Israel. The earliest Homo sapiens remains found until now are half as old.”
