A lot of people think that blackheads don’t get as much attention as whiteheads, but that’s not true.
A new study shows that there’s a connection between how many times you brush your teeth and how likely you are to get a blackhead.
Blackheads are the leading cause of bacterial and viral infections in children and adults.
The study, published in the journal Pediatrics, shows that blackhead rates in people who do not brush their teeth are more than double those in people with more regular brushing.
“There’s a reason why it’s been shown that black people are more likely to get blackheads, it’s because they have more bacteria,” Dr. Andrew Molloy, the study’s lead author, told NBC News.
“We think that they have less bacteria than white people because they’re more active in the body.”
The study looked at data from more than 1,000 adults and children from four regions of England: the North East, South West, North West and Midlands.
The researchers also looked at the microbiomes of more than 2,400 children aged between 5 and 12 years old.
They found that black Americans and people with lighter skin color had higher bacterial counts than white Americans.
But those rates were higher among people who did not brush frequently.
“Our results suggest that it is possible that brushing frequency, in particular brushing between 5 to 8 times a week, might be associated with a higher prevalence of blackheads,” the researchers wrote.
“People who brush more often are more active, they have higher activity in the respiratory system, they’re less likely to be allergic to certain bacteria, and they have lower rates of infection,” Mollow told NBC.
“This finding is consistent with what we see in other studies.
People who are less active have lower bacterial counts, so that’s consistent with the idea that people who are more inactive have less bacterial counts.”
Blackheads are often mistaken for infections and infections are usually due to bacteria that have mutated to a point where they are no longer able to kill them.
That makes them less likely than whiteheads to show symptoms.
But blackheads do have a different biology than whitehead infections, Mollot added.
“They are more closely related to other bacterial species, like Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
It’s not clear if they’re related to bacteria in the skin or the mucous membranes, but they can be very easily transmitted.
They can be a problem because of the way they’re spread.
They are much more easily transmitted through contact with skin, and you might think of the skin as the gateway for bacteria, but it’s actually the skin,” he said.
But there is also a connection to how often you brush.
Mollay said that brushing less often leads to a higher risk of infection.
“It’s really important to understand the difference between what you do and what the bacteria are going to do,” he told NBC, adding that it’s also important to get regular cleaning of your skin.
“You really need to be brushing frequently and getting the correct level of care and it’s important to remember that your skin does not discriminate between bacteria, so if you are brushing less frequently, then you may have fewer bacteria.”
