Hot and Heavy Kissing = Good Health

Pucker up. It could be good for your health!

According to the author of a new book about kissing, it can really help your health.

First, kissing can help lower blood pressure.

Passionate kissing, especially, gets your heart pumping, and your blood flowing. That can also help you get rid of headaches and cramps.

Kissing is also good for your teeth and gums. More saliva is secreted when you kiss which washes away plaque.

And here's one for your new year's dieting resolution: kissing burns calories. An intense make-out session can burn 8 to 16 calories per kiss.

Finally, kissing can give you a facelift.

Deep kissing can shape up your neck and jawline because you're basically working out your facial muscles.

Have fun getting healthy!
