Bacteria Cause Gum Disease and Worse

The research isn't conclusive, but red, swollen, and bleeding gums may point to health problems from heart disease to diabetes. Sometimes, bacteria from your mouth can travel to your bloodstream, setting off an inflammatory reaction elsewhere in your body. Left untreated, gum disease can increase your risk for a host of diseases linked to inflammation. Certain diseases and medications also may cause mouth problems.

I agree. Bacteria in the mouth can play havoc elsewhere in the body. Aside from diabetes and cardiovascular disease, periodontal disease is also associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
