Teeth plaque and poor oral hygiene is causing cancer

Do you have lots of plaque on your teeth? If you do, you could be at greater risk of developing cancer, claims a new study, which has found a direct link between oral hygiene and the disease

Do you have lots of plaque on your teeth? If you do, you could be at greater risk of developing cancer, claims a new study, which has found a direct link between oral hygiene and the disease.
People with the highest amount of plaque were nearly twice as likely to have cancer - and, in women, it was most likely to be breast cancer.
Researchers from Helsinki University found a direct correlation between amounts of plaque and cancer risk when they looked at oral hygiene and cancer rates in 1,390 people.
