Who likes to go to the dentist? Not me, that’s for sure. Yes, I really think that we can all agree on one thing – going to the dentist can be pretty stressful for many people, especially if they don’t take care of their teeth and gums.
But, what if we tell you that a regular visit can actually leave you more prone to a life-threatening disease? A recent study has shown that getting a root canal can lead to bacterial overload and may increase your chances of developing breast cancer. Take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
The Root Canal-Breast Cancer Connection
Ladies and gentlemen, I really think that you’ll be shocked when we tell you that more than 25 million root canals are performed every year in the United States. Yes, and we all (well, most of us) know that this highly invasive procedure involves drilling into a decaying tooth to remove the infected pulp, and then using a file of sorts to reach into the canal of the tooth to remove the remaining pulp. And then, the canals are filled with a plastic material. And, here comes the problem – a recent study has shown that in many cases the plastic does not actually get into the tiny lateral canals of the tooth that branch off the main canal, which results in “leakage” of the highly toxic anaerobic bacteria the procedure was designed to remove. And, the experts warn that this bacterium can cause many health problems – including breast cancer. The famous dentist, Dr. Kulacz, has performed biopsies on every root canal tooth he has ever extracted.
“Almost all of them have remnants of necrotic debris still in that canal meaning that they were not thoroughly cleaned. Microbiological cultures of the surrounding bone showed infection almost 100 percent of the time.”
Bill Henderson, cancer-prevention advocate for more than 25 years and author of Cure Your Cancer and radio host of How to Live Cancer-Free), also says that there is growing scientific evidence of a significant correlation between root canals and breast cancer.
“Two facts have jumped out at me…The most common cause of all cancers is root canal-filled teeth and cavitation sites; and until a cancer patient gets rid of the root canal-filled teeth and cavitations, they don’t get well.”
Study confirms – a five-year study, conducted by Dr. Robert Jones, looked at the relationship between root canals and breast cancer. And the results from this study showed that a 93% of breast cancer patients also had root canals, and the other 7% had other oral diseases or issues. And, I really think that you’ll be shocked by the fact that almost all of the cancerous tumors were found on the exact same side of the body as the original root canal.
Another study, published in the American Academy of Periodontology (1998), has revealed that the root canal procedure itself may be the cause of infection. In 12 of the 26 case subjects the study examined, the root canaled teeth as well as the patient’s blood samples both contained anaerobic bacteria.
Bottom line – having a root canal done could lead to never-ending river of bacteria flowing into your bloodstream.
Your Teeth and Your Overall Health
Unfortunately, the real and ugly truth is that we (usually) don’t think about the health of our teeth as a reflection on our general health. But, as you can see, our teeth are not only living organisms connected to the rest of your body. Yes, they are actually part of the ‘acupuncture meridian system’—an ‘energy highway’ that runs through your entire body.
According to the Chinese Medicine, Qi (chi) energy flows through this highway and accesses all the different parts of your body. Well, according to this theory, a tooth that is diseased or dying should just be pulled.
Note: each tooth has over 3 miles of tubules—tiny fluid-filled holes in its dentin layer, which means that it’s inevitable that the remaining tooth will eventually become a receptacle for deadly bacteria such as E. Faecalis (responsible for abscesses that ultimately spread to the rest of your body).
Infected Teeth Threaten Your Whole Body
Yes, and infected teeth can threaten your entire body. And, according to the Chinese Medicine, our organs are connected through meridians (energy highways). Well, this means that an infected tooth can affect the organs connected to it through the associated meridians.
The famous Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, best-selling author and founder of BreastCancerConqueror.com, says that the 4th and 5th tooth (to the left and right of the center teeth) in the upper and lower jaw, for example, are connected to the breast meridian.
Dr. Desaulniers says:
“…constant infection caused by a root canal in these teeth can lead to complications, energy (or Chi) imbalances and blockages in energy flow in the breast meridian. This imbalance can even be visible, in many cases, on thermography scans.”
Dr. Thomas Rau, a Swiss doctor, says that in the last 150 breast cancer patients (treated in his clinic), 147 (98%) had one or more root canal teeth on the same meridian as the original breast cancer tumor.
And, we can easily say that the most disturbing fact about the connection between cancer and root canals is that this deadly association was first reported in 1925, when Dr. Weston Price and 60 other prominent researchers revealed 1,174 pages of research to the American Dental Association (ADA) clearly stating that essentially, there is no safe way to complete a root canal filling as every case ended in similar results—infection and disease elsewhere in the body.
Dr. Hal Huggins, a dentist and dental toxin specialist says:
“Dr. Weston Price and Mayo Clinic’s 1910 to 1920 described finding bacterial growth in root canals that could be transferred into animals and create the same diseases the donor human had in from 80 to 100% of the animals. Heart disease, in particular, could be transferred 100% of the time. His research has since been suppressed by the various Dental Associations in the United States.”.
And now, the question remains – what to do with an infected tooth, which cannot be saved by any other procedure than a root canal? Well, you’ll be shocked when we tell you that many dentists around the world say that you should “remove the tooth and have the tissue around it cleaned and repaired by a holistic or biological dentist.” These specialized dentists take into consideration the fact that there is a proven connection between root canals and disease.
