Teeth and Alzheimer's disease: a new context?

<! –

Currently, health policy in Germany is mainly concerned with "mandatory vaccination". A topic that seems more thoughtful than traditional questions. It is recalled that much better documented procedures and findings from "alternative medicine" promise significantly more well-being. Thus, the topic of "Alzheimer's disease" was again dropped from public debate. Alzheimer's disease, it is said in the nucleus, is not preventable on the one hand, but genetically created, on the other it is also not curable. We remember this topic despite the distraction medical debate. A few months ago, researchers formulated the hypothesis that dental disease can affect the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's and diseased teeth: bacteria in the brain and gums …

A research team has discovered a bacterium called Porphyromonas gingivalis in diseased teeth, in inflammatory gums, as well as in the brains of people suffering from Alzheimer's disease, according to a Focus report. The research team concluded from this thesis that there is a direct link here.

In any case, in animal experiments it was shown that an infection in the mouth with this bacterium resulted in the same bacteria accumulating in the brains of the tested animals, here mice, here. The so-called beta-amyloid deposits were formed there, which would be "related to Alzheimer's disease".

These findings, according to research by Jan Potemp from the University of Louisville, should be substantiated. "Participating" in the research was, as is often the third party, the pharmaceutical company Cortexyme. This has developed a drug that can stop the infection in the brains of tested mice. Therefore, the drug should now be tested in humans, it was said. However, the results of these tests have not yet been publicly documented.

Yet: dental health also seems significantly more important to overall health than previously thought. Health topics are more important here.
