Teaming up with the American Diabetes Association® and the multi-talented performer and caretaker Joey Fatone @RealJoeyFatone, Colgate Total® is using the power of laughter to help raise awareness of the potential link between oral health and diabetes with the new “30 Days of Laughter” campaign (#30DaysofLOL), beginning today. The 30 days from November 12 to December 11, 2015 will be filled with laugh-out-loud videos, funny social media posts, engaging apps and more to make the diabetes community laugh, all while building awareness of the importance of maintaining the health of the teeth and gums behinds those smiles.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with diabetes are two times more likely to develop gum disease1. Colgate Total® toothpaste can help prevent and even reverse gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease. It is the only FDA-approved and American Dental Association-accepted2 toothpaste to help prevent gingivitis. With regular twice daily brushing, you can help improve your gum health in as little as four weeks3 with Colgate Total®.
Understanding how challenging managing diabetes can sometimes be, the funny and talented performer Joey Fatone is leading the “30 Days of Laughter” campaign to remind people that sometimes laughter can feel like the best medicine. “When my father was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, our family was shocked. But we’re a big, loving group and we all help him together every day. I know that humor in the face of challenges is vital and I’m excited to share that with other families touched by diabetes.”
