The August 2010 issue of the University of California, Berkeley Wellness Letter had this item:


Taking good care of your teeth may help protect your heart. People who have poor oral
hygiene are at higher risk for heart disease than those who brush twice a day, according to a
recent Scottish study in BMJ (British Medical Journal), which analyzed the health habits of
11,000 adults, including their dental habits. After adjusting the data for various risk factors,
such as obesity and smoking, the researchers found that infrequent brushers had a 70% higher
risk of heart disease. Accumulating evidence has linked gum disease and cardiovascular disease,
possibly because inflammation is involved in both of them. Gum disease may also impair
blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes, according to a recent review by the
Cochrane Collaboration.
