Having severe periodontal disease may increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer, according to a long-term study published in JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Medical professionals explained that the condition, more commonly known as advanced gum disease, is usually caused by bacterial infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Previous studies demonstrated a link between gum disease and cancer onset, but the mechanism behind the connection remained unclear. Continue reading
Study finds feces is common on toothbrushes in shared bathrooms
It’s enough to put you off brushing your teeth altogether.
According to a new study, there is a 60 per cent chance your toothbrush is covered in poo, regardless of how well you clean it.
And that’s not all. If you share a bathroom, around 80 per cent of that faeces will belong to another person. Continue reading
This is thought to be due to the bacteria that causes inflammation in the mouth entering the circulation via the gums and going into breast tissue, which can result in cancer.
Speaking of the study’s findings, Dr Nigel Carter OBE, CEO of the Oral Health Foundation, said: ‘Interestingly, this research shows that there is evidence to support the theory that gum disease can have a much larger impact on the health of our whole body.’
Severe gum disease, known as periodontitis, can affect the bones in people’s jaws and cause teeth to fall out. Continue reading
Protecting the Innocent: Dental Amalgam Mercury and Risks to Fetuses, Infants and Children
Dorice Madronero offered a grave warning to a 2010 Dental Products Panel of United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA):
“As a young expectant mother I know that twice following dental work I miscarried.
I know that at the time the dentist gave no warning about a mercury exposure. I know that at no point in my visits to the obstetrician was I warned about a mercury exposure, in the dental fillings or asked about my medical and dental history.” Continue reading
The bacteria responsible for periodontitis, which can be killed through brushing teeth, play a role in pancreatic cancer.
Scientists claim it is the first evidence that the bacteria can spread from the mouth to other parts of the body and cause tumours.
It offers hope of a cheap way of screening for pancreatic cancer, which is known for being vicious and having low survival rates. Continue reading
Did you know there’s a new type of dental filling that actually triggers your teeth to repair and regenerate themselves? It’s true. Researchers from Harvard University and the University of Nottingham recently developed a procedure known as stem cell fillings. In essence, it’s a regenerative dental filling that prompts the stem cells inside a person’s own tooth to heal itself. This is a revolutionary dental health discovery that could make the dreaded root canal a dental procedure of the past. Continue reading
97% of Terminal Cancer Patients Have Had This Dental Procedure…
Chronic degenerative diseases like cancer, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are becoming increasingly common in the developed world, despite the tremendous amount of money being invested into researching their cures. About 100 years ago, though, a scientist and doctor made a surprising discovery in connection with a common dental procedure… Continue reading
A recent study brings good news to people who have a sweet tooth and those who neglect to properly brush their teeth. Scientists were able to discover that teeth have the ability to reverse tooth decay; meaning, traces of such tooth damage can be totally gone, thus doing away with the necessity to undergo oral surgeries or have tooth fillings. Continue reading
Dental amalgam is made up of 50 percent mercury – a toxic heavy metal linked scientifically to neurological problems, kidney problems and infertility. In 1991, the World Health Organization reported that mercury fillings are the predominant cause of mercury exposure. So, the question remains: Is YOUR dentist telling you the whole truth about your health?
The American Dental Association (ADA) continues to deny the dangers of mercury-based, silver fillings – insisting that dental amalgam is a “safe, affordable and durable” material used to restore the teeth of over 100 million Americans.
It’s time to expose the real health threats posed by modern dentistry. Continue reading
As you journey through each of the 7 Essentials™, you will learn about Essential # 5 – Embrace Biological Dentistry. Essential #5 will teach you about the obvious connections between root canals, mercury fillings, periodontal disease and your health. In fact, you may have already met with a biological dentist to have your root canals and mercury fillings addressed.
What you may not know, however, is that there are also some “hidden culprits” inside your mouth that can lead to serious illness, including cancer, too They are hidden because they often don’t hurt, can’t be seen and don’t always accompany other major sources of infection (although sometimes they do). I am talking about dental cavitations.
I personally discovered cavitations when I was on my healing journey over 10 years ago. I discovered that I had a cavitation in my lefty lower jaw, sitting on the meridian that connected to my left breast! Coincidence you may say?
Looking for an alternative to toothpastes loaded with sulfates and other toxic ingredients such as fluoride? Mainstream science has now fully recognized the ‘miracle’ powers of coconut oil to not only combat tooth decay and drastically improve overall mouth health, but also to specifically crush a yeast known as candida albicans that can lead to deadly infections. This ‘news’ likely comes as nothing more than further confirmation for many, as natural health practicioners have been recommending coconut oil for years. Continue reading
When a person in the United States has a toothache, due to an infection in the tooth, rather than cure the infection with 3 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide, dentists almost always kill the tooth. They will typically drill out the insides of the tooth and fill the tooth with metal rods.
This is called a “root canal.” Root canals are a safe haven for microbes. Because no blood reaches the inside of the tooth, the immune system cannot kill any microbes inside the dead tooth. Continue reading
Treating cavities with standard dental fillings may soon be a thing of the past, thanks to new research showing that damaged teeth have a natural ability to heal on their own. Researchers from England have shown in new animal trials that, when exposed to a substance known to aid in mineral delivery and dentine formation, tooth cavities will naturally regenerate and seal themselves without the need for mercury-based amalgam, porcelain, cement, or some other synthetic material. Continue reading
Did you know that there are over 700 different strains of bacteria that could potentially call your mouth their home? Thankfully, the average person only houses around 50 to 75 of them and only a few of these strains would be considered “bad.” The overabundance of those harmful bacteria can do more than harm your teeth and gums.
In fact, several research studies conducted over the last decade have made the connection between periodontal disease (periodontitis and chronic inflammatory gum disease are other names it goes by) and specific kinds of cancer, including Breast Cancer.
Dentists everywhere perform them as a way of removing potentially life-threatening infections from their patients’ teeth. But root canals aren’t the surefire fix that many people think they are, as they not only cause many of the same infections that they supposedly remedy, but research shows that they also significantly increase one’s risk of developing cancer later in life.
