It could reduce your risk for breast cancer! Researchers at the University of Buffalo found women with gum disease have a 14% higher risk for breast cancer. They believe it’s because mouth bacteria enters the bloodstream – where it can contribute to chronic inflammation, and compromise breast tissue over time. So, daily flossing is key to preventing gum disease… and pay special attention to your molars. They’re set wider apart, so more food particles get stuck there, boosting bacterial growth.
