“Root Canals as the Primary Cause of Heart Attack and Breast Cancer”
1. To understand that the nature of the root canal procedure assures that a state of chronic infection and toxicity will result, even if the tooth remains pain-free
2. To appreciate that the pathogens and toxins in a root canal-treated tooth are readily disseminated from the venous blood drainage to the coronary artery endothelium, initiating the process of atherosclerosis
3. To appreciate that the lymphatic drainage from such teeth allows a similar dissemination of pathogens and toxins to the breast, particularly in an ipsilateral fashion
4. To appreciate that long-term positive outcomes (years versus months) are far less likely to result when atherosclerosis and malignancy appear to be effectively addressed but root canals remain unaddressed
