Poor oral hygiene can lead to Alzheimer’s and cancer

Results of a recent study reveal that have proper oral hygiene prevents the development of various diseases of gravity.

The consequences of not meeting these assumptions can lead to many more problems than we might think at first. To prove it, Professor Iain Chapple of Birmingham School of Dentistry conducted a test that consisted of a subject spending 15 days without brushing your teeth, causing serious damage to the immune system.

Tests revealed that white blood cells of the subject under study became more vulnerable as well, they were less effective in fighting infections. In the medium and long term this can be extended to various cells of the body, especially affecting the organs and circulatory system and leading to heart-related, diabetes, cancer, neurological problems or diseases.

As shown, the study created an extreme context because the reality is that while it is true that we still have much to improve in relation to oral hygiene, every day we are aware and is difficult to find someone who dispenses brushing teeth daily. However, experts warn that more needs to be done and that there are few who reach age 30 without any filling in the mouth, a problem caused by poor diet of poor brushing.

Poor diet and improper brushing can lead to serious health problems

The study by Professor Chapple, to be broadcast on the BBC, shows that proper oral hygiene takes us only a few minutes a day and can provide a better life. But it is not enough to tinker with the brush in your mouth, you have to learn the proper way to clean every surface in terms of what we have eaten. For example, if we eat sugary foods, the first thing that is affected is the enamel that you need to brush your teeth immediately afterwards.

In research also it involved a family whose members were divided into two groups. The first half hour and ate candy between the second did immediately after meals. The latter recorded lower levels of acidity and their teeth were healthier.

Finally, it was determined that the only thing that affects the quality of brushing is the way and the time devoted to this activity, so you do not need to invest large amounts of money on specific brushes or toothpaste.
