Hitler definitely died in 1945 according to new study of his teeth

PARIS: Adolf Hitler definitely died in 1945 in Berlin, from taking cyanide and a bullet, according to French researchers who were given rare access to fragments of the dictator's teeth held in Moscow. "The teeth are authentic, there is no possible doubt. Our study proves that Hitler died in 1945," professor Philippe Charlier said in an interview. "We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler. He did not flee to Argentina in a submarine, he is not in a hidden base in Antarctica or on the dark side of the moon,"…

UK student discovers 145 million-year-old ‘rat’ teeth

A nice, bright smile: Scientists use lasers to regrow teeth

WASHINGTON: Scientists have come up with a bright idea - literally - to repair teeth. And they say their concept - using laser light to entice the body's own stem cells into action - may offer enormous promise beyond just dentistry in the field of regenerative medicine. The researchers used a low-power laser to coax dental stem cells to form dentin, the hard tissue similar to bone that makes up most of a tooth, demonstrating the process in studies involving rats and mice and using human cells in a laboratory. They did not…
