Health Notes

We have mentioned recently that gum disease might increase one’s risk of getting pancreatic cancer. Now other experts are saying that “poor dental hygiene is unlikely to increase the risk of cancer.” It is interesting to me how there is so much dispute in the medical community about issues that should be beyond dispute. Either gum disease leads to cancer or it doesn’t. At least that’s how it seems to me. Anyway, if we have gum disease, we probably should see a periodontist and try to take care of the condition, even if there is no link between it and other diseases.
