    Default Poor Gums Could Be Triggering Liver Cancer

    Poor dental health is linked to liver cancer. People with periodontal disease—characterised by bleeding gums and loose teeth—are 75 per cent more likely to develop the cancer.
    Bacteria seen in periodontal disease has also been found in liver cancer cells, say researchers at Queen's Hospital in Belfast.

    Liver cancer, or hepatobiliary cancer, seems to be the only gastrointestinal cancer linked to gum disease. There didn't seem to be a raised risk for liver, colon, rectum or pancreatic cancers.

    There is a growing body of evidence that the primary bacteria (porphyromonas gingivalis) causing periodontal disease may also be linked to other diseases, like Alzheimer's, and cardiovascular and lung diseases. This same bacteria is found in the amyloid plaque in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. Further, this bacteria triggers the production of an enzyme----I forget the name, but it's something like Trepinoe denticola??. This enzyme shows up in the cells of diseased organs associated with the gastrointestinal tract. Yet another reason to stay on top of gum disease.
