How brushing your teeth could prevent cancer
from Daily Times
Brushing your teeth regularly could help to prevent bowel cancer, a study suggests. This is because the mouth bacteria that cause bleeding gums can travel via the blood to the bowel where they could trigger cancer or worsen existing tumors. The bug fusobacterium has been found to be hundreds of times more common in cancerous tumors than in normal cells. Now researchers have found that the microbes can make precancerous growths in the bowel turn cancerous. They can also make any existing tumors in the bowel grow larger.
