Bathroom Trick CUTS Liver Cancer Risk!

Dear Reader,

I hope you’re never faced with this life-shattering diagnosis: Liver cancer.

It’s got an 11% five-year survival rate… and you’ll spend those years going through harsh treatments that will leave you sick and miserable.

But this doesn’t have to be your fate

Because research shows there’s a way to guard your body against this cancer.

It all starts in your bathroom… and slacking on this daily habit can UP your liver cancer risk as much as 75%.

A study published in the United European Gastroenterology Journal found that poor oral health can SIGNIFICANTLY RAISE your risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common form of liver cancer.

The study sampled around 469,000 people and investigated the connection between oral health problems and disease.

At the end, researchers found a “substantial link” when it came to liver cancer.

Oral and gut microbiome (important for healthy digestion and a balanced immune system) play a large role in cancer development.

And having poor oral hygiene can throw these systems off-balanced and make you a walking target for liver cancer.

What’s more? Among those that developed liver cancer in the study, 13% had previously reported poor oral health and hygiene habits.

So if you’re inclined to postpone flossing or not brush your teeth before bed… you may want to think twice.

Research suggests that you brush your teeth twice a day, floss every day, use a mouthwash, and be sure to check in with your dentist.

Don’t skip out when it comes to your oral health. Keeping your mouth healthy and happy could very well keep your body safe from this dangerous disease.
