|Dangers of Conventional Root Canals
"[Weston Price (WestonaPrice.org)] removed those canals of people suffering from kidney and heart disease and in most cases their condition improved. Then he inserted the root-filled teeth under the skin of rabbits who have immune systems similar to humans. If a small fragment were inserted, within two weeks the rabbit died with the same condition the human donor had. If a large fragment was inserted, the rabbit died within 12 hours to 2 days."
"Dr. Price observed that angina pectoris, phlebitis, hypertension, heart block, anemia, and inflammation of the heart muscle are frequent side effects of root canal therapy. He also reported that he would sometimes see heart patients with outwardly normal- appearing root canal teeth resolve most or all of their symptoms upon removal of those dead teeth [H. A. Huggins, _The Price of Root Canals_, Colorado Springs, CO, Huggins Diagnostic Ctr, 1994]....New research shows that dental infections are behind hardening of arteries, heart attacks, strokes, and spontaneous preterm births (Morton Walker, D.P.M.  _Elements of Danger: Protect Yourself Against the Hazards of Modern Dentistry_, Hampton Roads, p. 40).
"infections persist for years w/o the patient's knowledge...toxins leak out and depress the...immune system, leading to chronic degenerative diseases....Weston Price, D.D.S., M.S., F.A.C.D., former Dir. of Research for the Am. Dental Assn. [for 14 years], made the astonishing claim that if teeth that have had root canals are removed from patients suffering from kidney and heart disease, these diseases will resolve in most cases. Moreover, implanting these teeth in animals results in the animals developing the same kind of disease found in the person from whom the tooth was taken. Dr. Price found that toxins seeping out of the root canals can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidney, uterus, and nervous and endocrine systems...research has demonstrated that 100 percent of all root canals result in residual infection" (_Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide_, Burton Goldberg Group, 1993, pp. 81-83; alternativemedicine.com).
"Cavitations are infected areas in bone surrounding the roots of teeth. They usually come from infected matter in root canalled teeth. When a DDS does root canal therapy (RCT) s/he sterilizes and fills the vertical pulp canal - about an inch long - and leaves infected the approximate 3 miles of dentinal tubules that cannot yet be treated..full of infection - that will continue to release toxins, viruses, etc. into the blood stream for the rest of your life..Infections from this source affects your entire immune system.. The infection exudes from the root to the supporting jaw- one..For a more complete description request our report `Can Root Canals Make You Sick?' [include your mailing address] ..I wrote the Forward to.George Meinig['s] _The Root Canal Cover-Up_" Jerry Mittelman, DDS, FAPM, Editor, Holistic Dental Digest
"I have had a number of patients with breast cancer, all of whom had root canals on the tooth related to the breast area on the associated energy meridian." John Diamond, M.D.
"the reason being that dead teeth [which root canals are] will scatter toxins throughout the body, apparently following the meridian that they lie upon"
"chronic headaches for 20+ years. She had 5 root canals under her nose. She had them extracted and when she did the dentist had to open all the windows.The smell was of death. He put one of the teeth under my nose to get a good smell and I almost threw up..After they were removed, her chronic headaches were gone for good." Larry, notdoctors.com
"study of breast cancer patients and I found that over 98% had a disturbance on the stomach meridian....In about 150 cases of women with breast cancer, we only had 3 patients who did not have a root canal in a tooth that belongs to the stomach meridian...So we did a study of women in the same age range without breast cancer, without chronic diseases, and only 30% of that group had root canals" Thomas Rau, M.D., Chief Medical Dir., Paracelsus Clinic beating-cancer-gently.com/nl89.html
"looked at 50 cases of breast cancer....the breast lies on the stomach meridian...in the breast cancer, if you have a tooth with root canal on the stomach meridian, which is the 6th tooth from the front on both sides, the molar, if you have this root canal treated, it can be a blockage which can disturb the breast. I have seen about 50 cases...all of these 50 patients had a blockage on the tooth belonging to the stomach meridian. Mostly it was either cavitation problems after extraction of the teeth which was not done correctly or it was a root canal....If you had 100 women with breast cancer, would you expect [at least 90] to have a tooth involvement....We saw similar things also in prostate cancer....the front teeth....There are a lot of prostate cancer patients who do not have front teeth problems. But in the breast cancer, we did not find a single case without." Thomas Rau, M.D.
"Dr. Rau estimates that in 90% of breast cancer patients he has treated, there has been a dental infection. As the breast lies on the Stomach meridian, if you have a problematic tooth (such as a root canal) situated on this meridian, as it passes through the jaw it blocks the flow of energy and can cause degeneration and eventually cancer, Dr. Rau explains. To a lesser extent, a dental infection is also involved in the development of prostate cancer."
