Did You Know? Gum Disease is Serious as a Heart Attack
- Posted on: Feb 22 2009
Here are some important facts to know:
- More than 500,00 women die of heart disease annually-breast cancer deaths are estimated at 40,000-making heart disease the number one killer of women
- According to many past and recent research studies, it has been shown there are two obvious cardiovascular biomarkers caused by gum disease-C-reactive protein (CRP) and Lipoproteinassociated Phospholipase A2 ( Lp-PLA2).
- Any gum disease that is diagnosed and treated early enough has enormous impact on improving the chances of decreasing heart disease
At a recent event in our office we raised funds to help QOHF continue their outreach educational services. Their founders, Katy Attebery and Carmen Perez are very passionate about saving lives. We are proud to be associated with them.
We hope you will join them too–not just helping yourself, but also helping a friend.
Changing lives and saving them adds so much energy and gratitude to what we do every day at Flax Dental.
We hope everyone can be just as lucky.
Until next time, keep smiling right
