Diseased Gums Dramatically Raise Your Cancer and Health Risks
Date:11/19/2009

wn in several studies and is no longer considered just speculation.

A large study found that heart disease increased by 18% when gum disease was present. Several follow up studies came to the same conclusion and the relationship is now accepted by almost all medical professionals. C-reactive protein is a very good indicator of the chance of a heart attack occurring and is now a standard medical test. Elevated levels are a serious concern.

Research has also been done on the factors related to pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. One long established risk factor for pancreatic cancer is smoking. Researchers from Harvard School of Public Health and the Dana-Farber Cancer institute found gum disease was also associated with an increased risk. They published an article in The Journal of the National Cancer Institute in January 2007. The study found that after adjusting for all factors, men with advanced gum disease had a 33% greater chance of developing pancreatic cancer. Dr. Dominique Michaud and Dr. Charles Fuchs are the key authors of the study and they did point out that further work is needed to better understand and confirm the data.

English and American researchers have found in their study that gum disease is linked not only to pancreatic cancer but to a higher chance of lung, kidney and blood cancers in both smokers and non-smokers. A team at Imperial College London and Harvard studied the statistical health records of 50,000 men. The data was collected over 21 years. In their group of U.S. men, even in those who have never smoked the presence of gum disease meant a higher risk of cancer.

Those with a history of gum disease had a 14% higher chance overall of cancer compared with those with no history of gum disease. There was a 33% increase in the risk of lung cancer. There was a 50% rise in the chance of kidney cancer and a 38% rise in pancreatic cancer. Blood cancers
