Could Gum Disease Cause Breast Cancer?

Recently, a study conducted by the British Dental Health Foundation found that women who have missing teeth or gum disease may be up to 11 times more likely to develop breast cancer.

The link between cancer and poor oral health care hasn’t been formally determined by health care research, but poor oral health care has been linked to poor general health care. It has also been linked to diabetes, premature births and heart attacks.
