Got plaque? It may be linked with early cancer death
Brushing and flossing are a must for keeping plaque off your teeth and gums. But having a healthy mouth may have other benefits: it could also help lower your risk of dying of cancer. Researchers at the Karolinska Institute and the University of Helsinki report in the British Medical Journal Open that people with high levels of dental plaque were 80 percent more likely to die prematurely of cancer during a 24-year study period than people with little plaque.
