If I follow the instructions on my toothpaste tube, which say “for best results squeeze tube from the bottom and flatten it as you go up,” will this give me whiter teeth and fresher breath?

No, but it’ll put you on the side of Progress. If you can follow instructions like that, you’re part of the Team that knows Crest has been shown to be an effective decay preventing dentifrice when used in a conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular professional care. Your best buddy is Our Friend the Atom. No doubt you have an All-Electric Kitchen. A World Book encyclopedia still graces your living room or better yet, the den. At night, you browse through the acetate pages of the Visible Man. Thank your lucky stars that you’re the kind of person who can read, comprehend and follow directions. You’ll go far in this world, at least until you try to make your VCR quit flashing “12:00″
