The SHOCKING Cause of Your Heart Disease
When it comes to heart disease, the mainstream medical community is like a one-trick pony.
All they ever talk about is cholesterol.
In fact, they’ve now got 25 million Americans taking worthless statin drugs.
But the REAL cause of millions of cases of heart disease is something that most doctors never talk about.
And getting control of it could keep major heart problems from shaving YEARS off your life.
The link between periodontal disease and heart disease is indisputable at this point.
I can’t believe it’s not discussed more.
Research shows that people with periodontal disease are TWICE as likely to have heart disease.
With more than 200 million American adults suffering from gum disease, it could easily be considered one of the primary risk factors for cardiovascular problems.
Unfortunately, the mouth/heart connection doesn’t end there.
Researchers from New Orleans recently discovered another risk factor for heart disease also found in the mouth that has nothing to do with your gums.
The researchers analyzed people from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study who were between 45 and 69 years old.
Their goal? To see if losing your teeth in middle age was associated with an increased risk in cardiovascular disease in the future.
Losing just one tooth didn’t have an impact on heart disease risk.
But at two or more lost teeth, the cardiovascular disease risk jumped to 23% compared to those who didn’t lose any teeth at all.
The researchers took into account factors like diet, physical activity, weight, and blood pressure—and the increased risk remained.
This wasn’t the first study to find this unfortunate connection.
A few years ago, a study analyzing about 16,000 people from 39 countries found that tooth loss was associated with a number of risk factors for heart disease, including high blood sugar, elevated blood pressure, larger waist circumference, and diabetes.
Tooth loss also appeared to increase the levels of an enzyme that promotes inflammation and hardening of the arteries—two well-known problems for your heart.
If keeping all of your teeth isn’t enough of a reason to stay on top of your dental health, this connection to heart disease should make it more of top priority.
To a brighter day,
