Levy Lecture - The Roots of Disease


Topic: The Roots of Disease: Connecting Dentistry and Medicine by Tom Levy MD, JD

Conference: The Once and Future Cure:Past Present and Future of Medicine - Nashville, TN - March 14-16, 2014

Summary: It is now well-established that increased oxidative stress produces disease wherever it is present for a long enough period of time. How well any disease is managed and/or resolved ultimately depends upon the balance of infection/toxins (pro-oxidants) and antioxidants that are in specific tissues and areas of the body. Infections and toxins of dental origin, most importantly root canal-treated teeth, are enormously significant players in the disruption of this vital balance in favor of excess oxidation. A compelling case can be made for this being an important reason for not only chronic degenerative diseases of all kinds, but especially heart disease and cancer. This connection will be discussed in some detail, and practical suggestions will be made to help deal with this problem effectively in the patient population.
