Study: Mouth bacteria found in brain clots of stroke victims
from By Tammy Adams
A study performed in Finland found trace amounts of mouth bacteria present in brain clots of patients who suffered strokes. The takeaway? Good oral hygiene does more than prevent cavities. It could help to prevent a stroke. This was what the scientists proposed after finding DNA traces of oral bacteria in samples of blood clots that had caused strokes. Of the study population, 69.3% were men and 30.7% were women.
