Gum Disease May Lead to Pancreatic Cancer
If the threat of bad breath isn't enough motivation to floss, try this: men with gum disease are at risk of pancreatic cancer, according to a Harvard study. Scientists analysed health data from 52,000 men and found that those with gingivitis were 63 percent more likely to develop the often-fatal cancer.
"Bacteria may spread from the mouth to the organs," says study author Dr. Dominique Michaud.
