Alzheimer’s Worse In Patients With Gum Disease, New Study Says

A new study has found that patients who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and who have gum disease are at risk of a faster decline that patients who are in better dental health.

Related, previous studies have also found a direct link between gum disease and Alzheimer’s patients, namely that higher rates of inflammation in the dental areas is linked to the increased decline of cognitive abilities.

Researchers at University of Southampton and King’s College London studied 59 people and used blood samples to detect to inflammation, publishing the results in the Plos Journal. The participants were also assessed by a dental hygienist. Following six months, the participants were reassessed.

The result was that those who suffered from gum disease were six times progressed in cognitive decline as compared to those who had healthy gums.

Older Americans are at higher risk of gum disease, and those who suffer from diseases like Alzheimer’s are at more risk because many lack the ability to properly care for their gums.

The goal of the study was to determine whether or not there was a link between periodontal disease and Alzheimer’s cognitive decline.

According to lead researcher, Professor Clive Holmes, more research is required, but the findings are an efficacious start.

“If there is a direct relationship between periodontitis and cognitive decline, as this current study suggests, then treatment of gum disease might be a possible treatment option for Alzheimer’s,” Holmes wrote.

While this study is considered to be a small, limited trial, and while substantial future research is needed to determine whether or not there is a link between these diseases or if the findings are purely coincidental, it could lay the framework for a larger clinical study in the future.

If newer, larger studies determine there is a link between the diseases, it could lead to more integrated methods of care that help patients prevent or treat gum disease while simultaneously slowing the cognitive decline.

According to ALZ.org, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, “But drug and non-drug treatments may help with both cognitive and behavioral symptoms,” the site explains.

If you have a loved one who suffers from this disease, there are ongoing clinical trials that they may be a candidate for. More information is available here.

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
