Brush Your Teeth for a Healthy Colon?
Neglecting your dental hygiene could lead to colon cancer.
Too lazy to brush your teeth at night? Well you might be putting yourself in harm’s way!
A study recently found a link between the common bacterium found in your mouth and colon cancer. The bacteria can attach itself to colon cells and alter them, which could eventually lead to cancer.
The change begins when the bacteria creates an inflammatory response from colon cells, thus altering the immune system and encouraging the growth of cancer cells.
Dental hygiene is an important part of maintaining your health and should not be neglected, no matter how much you hate dentists.
