Dr. Bonner emphasizes the importance of finding and treating periodontal (gum) disease, because, untreated, it can lead to heart attacks and strokes. He sees more gum disease now than he did twenty-five years ago, he says, largely because of the increasing availability of harmful oral hygiene products on the market. Mouthwashes, for example, are generally considered trustworthy, but in reality, they are the cause of 36,000 cases of oral cancer a year. Moreover, 500 people are killed annually from alcohol ingestion related to mouthwashes.
Dr. Bonner discusses safe, effective oral health techniques and products that help to reverse gum disease with its far-reaching negative consequences. Best-selling coauthor, Dr. Earl Mindell also outlines how nutritional supplements can help deliver potentially enormous benefits to oral, as well as overall, health. In 1910, the Mayo (clinic) brothers said, "A person with a healthy mouth will live ten years longer."
