Doing This Could Prevent Several Forms of Cancer

It is vital to always take care of our oral hygiene. This step should not be dismissed alongside the care we give to the rest of our body.

Our mouths are the entrance to the rest of our body. In the mouth, is where most bacteria and germs enter and spread to the rest of our body. but maintaining proper oral hygiene is more than just preventing bad breath. Our mouths alone contain more than 700 different bacterium‘s. Some of them are not harmful, but some could be very if they are not kept under control.

Gum Infection

Our saliva is designed to help keep bad bacteria under control. Even the most healthy mouths contain both good and bad bacteria. That’s why it’s so important to take care of your oral hygiene, and not leave it all up to our own body.

Trust me, when most of us see a sentence start with, “ A study from (blank school) showed” we space out. But you’re going to want to hear this.

A recently published study from Harvard showed that People who do not have a healthy oral hygiene routine are 43 to 52% more likely to have throat and stomach cancer! That’s pretty crazy right? Just by having a consistent routine like brushing twice a day, flossing, and routine checks at your dentist could prevent the possibility of a life long disease or illness.

Even with other forms of cancer such as gastrointestinal and pancreatic share an enzyme that is present in the mouth where there is gum disease. This enzymes found in certain cancerous tumors, typically found in the mouth and acts as the main “boosting” agent in the development of gum disease.

Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I think I will just continue doing those three small things that could save me a lot of trouble. Hopefully this can shed some light on The relationship that the mouth has with the rest of the body, and how it is so vital to take care of our mouth’s.
