Dr. Levy is a board-certified cardiologist he's an attorney he's an author of many books he's also a one of the leading vitamin C experts in the world. Today we're going to talk about his new book the toxic tooth and how a root canal could make you sick. Before we start I'd like to get a comment on what was in the news a few weeks ago. Angelina Jolie removed her breasts her ovaries and fallopian tubes not to get cancer because she had that gene. Could you comment on that? Well you know I think that's probably a bit of a drastic approach it certainly would be one way to prevent from getting disease of those organs. To remove the organs but especially with regard to cancer of the breast. What we're going to talk about today namely the toxicity and the infectious nature of a root. It's very interesting to see that the significant majority of women with breast cancer have significant dental toxicity usually in the form of a root canal. Right along the same way that the lymphatics veins drain the toxins out of the root canal.
They share those in the breast so there's a lot of attitudes out there that you're just unlucky if you get cancer. You're unlucky if you get a heart attack and one of the main thrusts that I want to get across here is that yes there's bad luck involved in a lot of things but when it comes to heart disease and cancer it's not so much bad luck as a choice of the wrong dentist. Could you tell what other kinds of sicknesses could you get from a root canal? Well really in terms of the direct contribution the heart disease that we're going to talk about is the most direct because they've actually identified the same passages that are present in a root canal inside the blood clot that forms when you get a heart attack. Having said that, however, the root canal is a source of regular release of toxins and very potent pathogens throughout the body and as it turns out all diseases to one degree or another occur due to what's called increased oxidative stress in a toxin and an infection always increases oxidative stress.
A root canal can always contribute or make worse any disease process you're going on because you have to take in that much more quality nutrition and antioxidants such as vitamin C. In order to continue to win the reduction-oxidation battle that your body has to fight day in and day out to maintain good health. What can a person do that is listening to you now and just finished having a root canal done. What could they do to prevent you know infection or whatever comes from the tooth to go to the rest of the body? As it turns out and this is one of the important points in the book the root canal is what we call a fatally flawed procedure. By that I mean when you present to the dentist and you get pain in the tooth their approach so they're doing the root canal procedures to call out the pulp of the tooth basically take out the nerves and take out your ability to feel pain. However it assures that there will be infection chronic in that root canal treated tooth one hundred percent of the time and if not 100 percent of the time as close to 100% as you can because Dr. Hodgins before me came along and had over five thousand extracted root canal teeth that had come from dentists around the country submitted to dr. Boyd Haley at the University of Kentucky. He was able to assay these teeth and find that 100 percent of them were infected and making very potent toxins. Many along with the same level of toxicity as botulism. So the root canal is always infected it's always going to be releasing toxins and pathogens into the blood in the case of an individual like you just said one person who just got a root canal what did he or she do well. I would say once you see all the information that there is on root canals and the degree and the toxins and the infections you're playing Russian roulette with your health.
As long as you keep it in if you don't want to consider any possibility at all of getting the tooth properly extracted then you should definitely get on a quality program of supplementation. Has brought a basis of antioxidants and vitamins as you can and very high levels of vitamin C. And in some people, I emphasize some this will mimic eight the toxicity to a degree that you can give yourself some protection just after it was done. What about a person that has had it done maybe years ago what are the chances of them having this problem? I mean it's a linear sort of thing the longer you have the root canal in your mouth the longer and more toxins.

Is Your Smile Worth Your Life? What You Need to Know Before Undergoing a Root Canal Undergoing a root canal procedure isn't anyone's idea of a good time, but if one is necessary, we don't question its safety. According to Robert Kulacz, DDS and Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD, we should. Here, they reveal the hidden dangers of root canals. Nobody looks forward to having a root canal. But if you're in constant discomfort because of an infected tooth, you'll willingly hop into the dentist's chair and open wide. Sure, you might worry about feeling pain during the procedure (or paying for it afterward), but beyond those concerns, there's really no reason to worry about undergoing this common outpatient procedure, right? Wrong. Robert Kulacz, DDS, and Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD, say that a root canal is actually a scientifically flawed and potentially dangerous procedure. “Instead of solving a problem, root canals introduce a steady stream of dangerous-and even deadly-toxins into your body,” says Dr. Levy, co-author along with Dr. Kulacz of The Toxic Tooth: How a root canal could be making you sick. “Root canal-treated teeth are not sterile and contain pathogenic bacteria, which spread throughout the body and can initiate or worsen heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and even cancer.”
