All they ever proved is that the type of person who doesn't care about taking care of their teeth, doesn't care about taking care of the rest of their body either.

I thought that was the whole idea behind the original saying,

or as the smart people say "Correlation is not causation"

JrBobDobbs: My cousin in his early 20s who got endocarditis after a teeth cleaning which lead to a stroke and an aneurysm would beg to differ. Oh wait, as of 3 months ago, he no longer can. I will have to differ for him.


While I am greatly sorry for your loss.....did a medical professional actually say the one caused the other?

algrant33: My understanding is that the plaque which forms in your teeth is caused by the same bacteria which forms plaque in your arteries. The idea, then, is that if you're harboring the bacteria in your teeth, they have an opportunity to jump into your arteries.


I'm not a Fark GED Medical Doctor, but I am pretty sure that bacteria are not responsible for arterial plaque build up. They are for tooth plaque, but not in the blood system. That would be called a massive infection.

This.


THIS

It has to be a mental illness when a person won't take care of themselves. They rub their dirty body all over another person, making that person physically sick over and over again, requiring antibiotics. They smell so bad that people at work finally tell them that they smell. They become abusive when someone asks them to bathe. Their teeth disintegrate because they refuse to brush their teeth. Their dandruff is so bad that it causes severe allergies in others. They have fungal infections that they refuse to treat. They have diseases that they spread through sexual contact because they refuse to take responsibility for them. Their filth is so bad that is causes mental illness in others who have had to deal with it. And they don't care. They just go on looking to take their mess where ever they want, making others sick and never taking responsibility!

I accidentally walked into the path of a stink-breath girl today, I seriously thought someone had farted.

There's bad breath from foods you eat, and then there's bad breath from poor dental hygiene. The latter is very obvious and very easy to fix, unless you have some sort of condition. I've always wondered how people can deal with living with that smell day in and day out without breaking down and buying a freaking toothbrush and some Pepsodent.
