The link between oral health, good fitness
from The Coloradoan
Organizers of the new Wellness Wednesday event hope to help Americans focus on the benefits of total body health and wellness. This year, the emphasis was on oral fitness. The American Academy of Oral Systemic Health's goal is to educate healthcare providers and the public concerning the impact that poor oral health has on overall fitness and wellness. Medical researchers are finding links between poor oral health and heart attacks, strokes, rheumatoid arthritis, pancreatic cancer, kidney cancer, Alzheimer's disease and various pre-birth and newborn complications.
