Unfortunately, the conditions were not perfect for harvesting, with wind chills bringing temperatures down to -27 C (-17 F), meaning that the pickers would have a chilly night in the vineyard, risking frostbite to exposed skin.

On a more scary note, periodontal disease is also associated with heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and premature births. About 15% of adults between 21 and 50 years of age and 65% of adults over 50 are affected by this disease.
