Heart disease remains the number one
killer in the U.S. About 60 million Americans reportedly
have some form of heart disease. Some primary causes
of heart disease are still unknown. Widespread prevention
is not possible and modern medicine is puzzled. Ignored
teeth, jaws and airways are key pieces to the chronic
heart disease puzzle.
Worldwide statistics support a direct
connection between missing teeth and heart disease.
If you want to live longer, try to save your teeth.
