It is only normal for the human body to house a huge population of bacteria. Usually, these microorganisms do not mean us any harm. As a matter of fact, they also play a vital role in some of the most important bodily processes such as in protecting your body from potential pathogens.
Unfortunately, there are certain condition that turn the tide and cause the bad bacteria to takeover. One of these triggering conditions is gum disease.
Experts who are studying bacteria in the human body have found that a certain bacterium which is usually found in most cases of gum disease has the capacity to hi-jack the immune system and ultimately disrupt its functions.
Specifically, this bacterium reduces the effectiveness of your immune cells as protectors of your body. At the same time, it also works to aggravate the inflammation. Due to the crippled immune system, people experiencing gum disease at its advanced stages are very prone to other serious health risks.
