97% of Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure...

Posted By Dr. Mercola | February 18 2012 |

Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, "It's all in your head?"

Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth.

There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years.

PSEUDOSCIENCE

Just because it's on the internet, doesn't make it true, just because you believe it, doesn't make it true, you are free to believe what you want, and that doesn't make it true.

This is TERRIBLE pseudoscience, self-referencing (introducing a lot of bias), cites minimal sources, of which do not even cite endodontic treatment as the cause of death..but rather an extraction.

Secondly..the bacteria cited...are "ordinary mouth bugs"! While it's true a child's mouth is void of bacteria, very early interactions between the mother and child transmit the bacteria into the childs mouth (the author should blame the mother for this crime dont you think?) The problem is they become concentrated from a disease process...a dental cavity leading to an abscessed tooth. Such bacteria noted are also linked with Periodontal disease...which is largely cited with problems like heart disease, diabetes, low birth weight children as a factor..not as a cause.

No body part can become sterilized. It would destroy its function.

and lastly i'll just refute the "summary" Story at-a-glance

During a root canal, there is no way to sterilize your tooth; after the root canal, dangerous bacteria hide out in the tooth and are unreachable with antibiotics

-as i said, NO TISSUE in ANYBODY PART can be sterilize, it would be destroyed. There are antibiotic delivery systems used these days that can effectively destroy many of the anaerobic bacteria in the teeth of patients. YES, Dental students are aware of accessory canals, in fact 120% learn about it. There is no deception...it's just a plain lie on the author's part.

Root-canaled and filled teeth harbor bacteria that morph into very toxic forms, which then can migrate to other tissues in your body and cause serious medical conditions, including diseases of your heart, kidneys, bones, and brain

-"filled teeth" he opens his own can of worms...every filled tooth harbors bacteria? where is his reference that links cancer to filled teeth? Simply brushing your teeth also causes bacteria to migrate to other parts of you body, and you have just as much chance of gettting endocarditis from brushing your teeth as having a root canal...unless you meet certain guidelines that the AHA already well verses the dental community about.

There is no other medical practice that permits leaving a dead body part inside your body, because it triggers your immune system to attack

-There is no cogent thought in this statement, and there are no other parts in the body with physiology of the tooth. Apples/oranges. If someone leaves that tooth, they can just as likely die from the abscess.

If you have a diseased tooth, or if you’ve already had a root canal, I highly recommend consulting a biological dentist about have it extracted

-that is always an option, but not always necessary. There are many risk factors for cancer...can you find me the oncologist that specializes in Tooth-caused Cancer? let me know when you do.

PS..every citation on there from actual journals has nothing to do with endodontic treatment. The only entry referring to the association of endodontists actually refutes the entire blog.

Wow.....Are you a Lobbyist for the ADA?

???

wow

no substance. try again.

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Curious, where is your substance/evidence?

I have yet to see you provide any evidence for your arguments.
You have continued to rant about this article being *pseudo-science* and yet you have NOTHING to back up your claim.

It is real simple.... a child can understand this.... leaving a DEAD tooth (anything dead for that matter) is not HEALTHY for your body and will corrupt the entire body eventually....it could take many years but eventually the disease will manifest.

The old proverb is still true..." one rotten apple can spoil the whole bunch".

I, for one, have learned from experience of having a loved one die due to root canal's ....and it was PROVEN that is was her root canals that infected her body....her own dentist was SHOCKED & HORRIFIED to see the poison/toxins/bacteria that had honeycombed into her jawbone and spread throughout her body!!!!!!!

She would have me plead to all those who have had root canals to go to a biological dentist to find help in correcting what was previously done to them.

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net

I'm not

Unreasonable, if you show the study linking it, and not an article making outlandish claims based on the evidence, by all means. But if you don't believe an articles claims, you should go to it's sources....which I did, and none were supportive of it's claims. That's bad science, bad writing and overall misleading. If you don't need evidence that's fine, and by all means no one forces you to have root canals, and if there are problems you should have it followed up.

Go to the comment section and

Go to the comment section and read personal stories from people.

are you a member of "The Flat Earth Society"?

Yeah, I have read all the MOCKING comments......(100% cancer patients breathed oxygen, drank milk, drove a car....yada, yada....mock mock)

All these mockers would have mocked at the " earth is round" proponents too!
No matter how much evidence is given, there will still be the mockers and the FLAT EARTH SOCIETY!

How many times are you going

How many times are you going to repeat the same post? It's crossed over into spam territory.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

it isn't spam

if you want to debate the post, do it. i just see posts that aren't on the subject of the topic...hence it's trolling.

this article is pseudoscience, and should be revealed as such.

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Same post, three times =

Same post, three times = spam. And you're being very negative and just wanting to argue. You are taking the position that you are the expert and those who disagree with have to prove that you are not. You say the article is pseudoscience, but WhoTF are you? I mean really. Get over yourself already. Somebody posted this as an FYI for other DPers to consider, and there's a couple of you who are acting like know-it-alls (which you are not) or shills for the ADA/AMA. Every time someone posts an alternative health post, just as sure as sh1t there are you people who just can't handle it. Please figure out how to handle it.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

An unsubstantiated

Claim, with no source, and the sources posted as supportive are not at all to the premises is NOT science, is NOT logical and is by no means Alternative health.

Believe what you want, it has no bearing on what's true based on the evidence.

Something tells me root

Something tells me root canals are less deadly than repeated TSA Xrays.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

What percentage of people with these fillings ...

... develop cancer?

A whole lot less.

That said, mercury fillings are bad in many ways. Glad I had mine removed.

CAUTION:
Have this done by someone who knows how to do it right, because otherwise the toxic mercury goes down your throat and is devastating - worse than leaving them in.

Do your research!!!!!

Start with Hal Huggins, DDS.

Even More Deadly

100% of terminal cancer patients breath oxygen. Is oxygen the leading cause of cancer?

good one

people easily believe in logical fallacy, and dont want to see the error of it.

you can believe whatever you want, i firmly adhere to this...but that doesn't mean what you believe is true.

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Don't 99%

Of the people have root canals? Most everyone I know do.

Do your best have no expectations

How healthy is everyone you

How healthy is everyone you know?

We are one of the sickliest and obese countries on earth, yet we pay more for health care than all the other countries combined. Something's not right.

Whoa

Everyone should watch that video.

How timely...just got back home from my dentist. My mouth is....

still numb plus my left upper lip from deep cleaning of my left side set. Done for the right side.

After reading part of this article..I'd swear myself to religiously keep my teeth clean.

Btw, my (relatively new) dentist suck...a rip off kinda dentist (did a filling on a tooth that does not bother me at all at prior visit. Now she tells me to replace my left lower molar gold crown cause she said "there is a small hole and needs to have it replaced". Yeah right, notice the price of gold lately...).

Luckily, I found a real good one (based on Yelp reviews) and had my dental insurance change it effective 1st of next month. :)

Yelp is fantastic isn't it?

Yelp is fantastic isn't it? I need to remember to use it to find a dentist to undo all of the horrible stuff that other dentists did to my teeth.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Yelp is fantastic indeed. I use mainly for restaurant reviews..

Like to go to those "hole in the wall" places but have great, awesome food at great prices. Am a foodie, btw.

Oops, there goes my deep cleaning... ;p

Yeah we've used yelp for all

Yeah we've used yelp for all sorts of things, but would have never thought of it for a dentist. Good call!

Weston Price and Dr Mercola are very credible sources.

I've been a subscriber to Dr Mercola for several years now and have found him to be a very credible source of info. I trust him 99.9% of the time. And Dr Weston Price is/was one of the best. Well respected, trusted for his medical studies and science among naturopaths.

After doing much research on dental treatments and materials they use - I've come to the conclusion that they're a lot like the medical/pharmaceutical cartels and can not be trusted so easily.

I've had all of my metal removed and definitely have seen a substancial improvement in memory, clarity and ability to focus.

your post

does nothing to advance the argument that root canals cause cancer (or contend with my refutations), it just side steps the issue. most dentists dont even use amalgam, so that post is vastly becoming less and less relevant. No dentist straps you down and puts amalgam in your mouth.

i'm happy a guy put out a youtube to explain his position, now show me the article linking amalgam..in humans...to cancer cells. Show me the work from MD Anderson Cancer Center that treats amalgam-caused cancer.

When i suggested this to my dentist...

He had a holier-than-thou meltdown, like some pipsqeek was questioning his PHD.

Not sure why he had such a kneejerk reaction. Maybe he's heard the suggestion before. Maybe his medschool professor once scoffed at the idea and he was re-living the memory through me.

It was kind of weird. He spoused his credentials and started quizzing me on my dental background, which of course I had none, as evidence that root canals are harmless.

When I told him it wasn't me that suggested it, but rather a Dentist wrote about it in a book, he was like "oh, ONE dentist says this......"

Well. I won't be going back there, but this seems to be a sore subject for at least one dentist.

Common Dentist Reaction

troy, what you experienced is common among dentists. They, as doctors, believe unwaveringly in what they do. Because they do, they react ugly to the person who asked them questions, questions about health. That you won't return to him is good for you. I encourage you to read my comments in this thread and in what I linked to. If you have questions, ask them.

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

Now see. That type of "well

Now see. That type of "well I'm the one with the degree silly person" attitude one of the reasons why doctors and dentists can be very dangerous.

Think of all the economists who were trained in Keynesian economics. They may be well meaning, and have walls filled with degrees, but they have destroyed the world's economies.
