Tooth and nails

From Erbil, Iraq comes word of a major innovation in dental care: a tree that cures the toothaches of those that hammer nails into its trunk. How the tree does this no one can really say. Unsurprisingly dentists are mad about the competition:

“Dentists, however, are not among the believers. Friyad Kamal, a practitioner in Erbil, says the tree has hurt his business”

Which is why it’s unlikely the powerful American Dental Association in the United States will ever allow this treatment to take root in the United States.
