Modern dentistry has been under scrutiny for many things, not the least of which is the neurotoxic effects of mercury amalgam fillings. But there are other sinister side effects associated with the modern dentist and their affinity for filling teeth with heavy metals. For instance, new research has shown that root canals are related to an increase in breast cancer risks. Now, I bet your dentist won’t be telling you that.
Root canals fill your teeth with toxins. They literally are carving out your tooth like a jack-o-lantern, and then replacing the innards with hazardous fillings.
A five-year study conducted by Dr. Robert Jones followed 300 women with breast cancer. He found that 93% of them had root canals. And, oddly enough, most of their tumors developed on the same side of the body where the root canal had been performed.
Root canals are not beneficial to the body in any way; they often trap harmful bacteria in what’s left of the tooth – which leads to the very common abscess or spreading of infection to the rest of the body. A tooth that can’t be saved with a nontoxic filling or crown is not worth saving. The aesthetic appeal of having a root canal is far outweighed by the health risks of having one done.
