Dental Health and Obesity Increase Systemic Inflammation

PositiveTips

According to a study done by West Virginia University, there is a relationship between dental health, obesity and systemic inflammation in children. Both dental health and obesity were found to be markers of systemic inflammation. Children did not have as high a risk as adults. Ideal weight and good dental health is important for your children and for yourself (and others appreciate it too)!

PositiveTip: Remember, brush your teeth everyday and be sure to see the dentist every six months.
