Is Your Root Canal Giving You Cancer?


I know cancer.

I’ve had it. I’ve survived it. I’ve lost my husband to it. I’ve studied it. I’ve learned from it. I’ve become a new person because of it.

There are thousands of people just like me, who have obsessed over every detail and every book that can give some cancer answers. There are people who spend countless hours in the lab studying it, trying to beat it.

Yet, everyday cancer shocks me with something new. It can be a scary thought hat more often than not, we find less cures and more causes. But knowledge is power and causes can be controlled. I have been reading a lot about one cause that is really earth shattering. There is a lot of research emerging that root canals can cause cancer.

I’ve heard about this for years but a few months ago I went to a seminar by an amazing doctor that told many stories of cancers aligned on the meridian of the root canaled-teeth.

When you get a root canal, it leaves that tooth “dead”- and it can become home to highly toxic bacteria that could eventually make it’s way to your bloodstream and cause a whole slew of serious medical conditions. The biggest issue is that it could take years, even decades, for this process to happen, making the disease nearly untraceable back to the root canal.

I recently read a great article by Joseph Mercola who studied the work of Weston Price, a dentist who researched the connection between teeth and disease. Dr. Price did some fascinating studies after becoming suspicious that root-canaled teeth always remained infected, even after being treated.

In one study, he suggested that a woman who had been wheelchair bound for six years remove her root canaled teeth. She did, and they implanted the teeth under the skin of a rabbit. The rabbit became crippled and died from the infection 10 days later. The woman immediately recovered and could walk again.

Dr. Price also did some studies with heart disease. He would transfer root canaled-teeth fragments from someone who had had a heart attack to a rabbit and 100% of the time the rabbit had a heart attack within weeks.

That’s pretty incredible evidence if you ask me.

Among finding many links between your teeth and chronic illness, Dr. Price found that it’s impossible to sterilize a root-canaled tooth.

Here’s how it all works:

  • Each of our teeth has tons of little tubules. Microscopic organisms move in and around these tubules constantly.
  • When you get a root canal, the dentist cuts the tooth off from its blood supply, so fluid can’t move around the tooth. But the tubules remain. Bacteria remains, hiding out and being shielded from antibiotics and your immune system’s defense
  • These organisms are cut off from oxygen and nutrients causing them to morph into strong and potent toxins.
  • If your immune system is strong, it can likely fight away any bacteria that comes leaking out from these teeth. But the minute your immune system is weakened, whether it be by illness or trauma, your system may lose it’s ability to fight the bacteria.
  • The bacteria leaks out and gets into your blood stream and starts thriving in a new location, which could be an organ, gland or tissue.

The following diseases have shown links to root canals:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Arthritis, joint and rheumatic diseases
  • Neurological disease
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Breast cancer and other cancers
  • Tumors

In the most startling statistic of all, a german doctor who worked with cancer patients for over 40 years found that of his terminally ill cancer patients, 97% of them had root canals.

As Dr. Mercola points out in his article, even the idea of leaving a root canaled tooth – a dead body part – in your body is crazy.

What can you do?

The good news is, the answer may be as simple as removing any root-canaled teeth and working on boosting your immune system.

The best thing you can do is avoid having to get a root canal in the first place. Proper oral hygiene is so important. Brush, floss and visit your dentist regularly.

If you do have to get a root canal, find a biological dentist who is specially trained to do these processes safely and check out this great website for toxic-free teeth information.

And of course, what you’re eating plays a massive part in the health of your teeth.  If you drink sugary or starchy foods, you are feeding the plaque in your mouth. Constant exposure to these foods can quickly lead to tooth decay and accumulation of toxins that will attack the gums and the bones supporting the teeth.

Remember, you always have choices. It’s your body and your life, let’s keep it safe and healthy.
