Break the Link Between Periodontal Disease and Heart Disease

New sci­ence dis­cov­er­ies of the past few years point to yet anoth­er sim­ple way you can sub­stan­tial­ly reduce your chance of devel­op­ing heart dis­ease or stroke. Even if the walls of your arter­ies have already begun to thick­en and block blood flow, this easy and rel­a­tive­ly inex­pen­sive method can help reverse those changes.

What’s even bet­ter is that it doesn’t involve any harm­ful drugs.

It’s as sim­ple as tak­ing care of your teeth.

The link between periodontal disease and heart disease is becoming clearer than ever.

A research team based in Italy sim­ply pro­vid­ed rou­tine den­tal hygiene – clean­ing of the teeth and gums, with­out surgery or antibi­otics – to a group of indi­vid­u­als. And sure enough, over time the sci­en­tists could mea­sure a dis­tinct improve­ment in the health of the sub­jects’ arter­ies.

If you find these results sur­pris­ing, you’re not alone. The research team leader, Dr Mario Cleri­ci of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Milan said, “To tell you the truth, we were real­ly sur­prised by the result, but it turned up in sub­ject after sub­ject.”

Take care of your teeth & gums

This break­through infor­ma­tion is easy to turn to your advan­tage. Just brush and floss your teeth twice a day and vis­it your den­tist for reg­u­lar clean­ings.

This is only one of the many sim­ple ways you can reduce your risk of heart dis­ease and the oth­er major killers we’ve been trained to fear.
