In a study regarding a link between periodontal disease and an increase in the risk of a heart attack, Dr. Maurizio Trevisan found that individuals with periodontal disease had a 78 percent higher rate of heart attack than those without. Although there are obviously numerous causes of heart disease and cancer, decades of research and clinical studies strongly support the idea that poor fat digestion and liver function are two major causes of these diseases. Something as deceptively simple as dental tartar or calculus formation is not just a localized problem. Instead, it appears to be a symptom of a much more serious underlying problem with direct links to heart disease and possibly cancer.
