Alzheimer's Gingivitis

Alzheimer's Gingivitis
The cause, and a possible cure, for Alzheimer’s may have been discovered. New just published research results appear to show that the bacteria that causes gingivitis, or gum inflammation also causes Alzheimer’s….

These findings are described here.  These findings are breathtakingly important.  It is interesting that the article I cited does not mention the obvious importance of brushing and flossing as a way of preventing the problem.  As I have often mentioned lifestyle – including brushing and flossing – are the most important determinants of health, but our system and culture de-emphasize lifestyle and instead emphasize treatments.  The treatment is of course hugely important but if this article is correct, better oral hygiene may mean they may never be needed.
