Brush your teeth for a healthier heart
from YouDocs via Healthzone.ca
What's better than walking out of the dentist's office with a megawatt smile, the slick feel of just-polished teeth, a free toothbrush and knowing that's over? How about a 33 percent drop in your risk for a heart attack or stroke? Dentists and cardiologists long have known that neglecting your pearly whites kicks up trouble in your arteries. The same gunky dental plaque that sticks to your teeth, causing gum disease, also ratchets up bodywide inflammation. And that encourages a different kind of plaque: the artery-clogging kind that can hurl a blood clot at your heart or your brain.
