Postpone Alzheimer’s – Brush your teeth


The researchers have determined that gum disease (gingivitis) plays a decisive role in whether a person develops Alzheimer´s or not.

Researchers discovered DNA-based proof that the bacteria causing gingivitis can move from the mouth to the brain. The bacteria produces a protein that destroys nerve cells in the brain, which in turn leads to loss of memory and ultimately, Alzheimer´s.

Brush your teeth for better memory.

The bacteria is not causing Alzheimer´s alone, but the presence of these bacteria raise the risk for developing the disease substantially and are also implicated in a more rapid progression of the disease. However, the good news is that this study shows that there are some things you can do yourself to slow down Alzheimer´s.

“Brush your teeth and use floss”. If you have established gingivitis and have Alzheimer´s in your family, to go to your dentist regularly and clean your teeth properly.

Researchers have previously discovered that the bacteria causing gingivitis can move from the mouth to the brain where the harmful enzymes they excrete can destroy the nerve cells in the brain. Now, for the first time, researchers have DNA-evidence for this process from human brains. They examined 53 persons with Alzheimer´s and discovered the enzyme in 96 per cent of the cases. According to them, this knowledge gives researchers a possible new approach for attacking Alzheimer´s disease.

They have managed to develop a drug that blocks the harmful enzymes from the bacteria, postponing the development of Alzheimer´s. I repeat this only postpones it not prevents you from alzheimer’s.

Gingivitis(gum disease)

  • The bacteria gingivalis is one of the main causes to infection in the gums.
  • The bacteria causes chronic infection in the gums, but can move to the brain where it can damage nerve cells in the brain.
  • In addition to Alzheimers, the bacteria is linked to rheumatism(any disease marked by inflammation and pain in the joints, muscles, or fibrous tissue), COPD(Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common lung disease.) and esophageal cancer.

  1. I will also like to mention that most people who find themselves without the need of health insurance are generally students, self-employed and those that are unemployed. More than half with the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not experience they are looking for health insurance as they are young in addition to healthy. Their income is frequently spent on housing, food, and also entertainment. Lots of people that do represent the working class either 100 or in their free time are not provided insurance by their jobs so they proceed without due to the rising tariff of health insurance in america. Thanks for the tips you discuss through this web site.
