A root canal is a dental procedure that is attempting to save an infected or dead tooth. The nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed and the inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. However, it is not possible to sterilize a tooth and dead material will remain. After removing the insides of the tooth, the dentist attempts to sterilize the remaining tooth to prevent further infection and render the tooth both pain-free and usable. This material can cause health issues such as: inflamed gum tissues, and tonsils, infection then can further metastasize to the heart, eyes, kidneys, lungs or other organs. This infection travels through the bloodstream. There is a 66% overall failure rate for root canals. Approximately 60 MILLION root canals are performed every year. It is almost as common as a filling.
“Dead teeth have the largest number of diseases ever traced to a single source.” Dr. George Meinig, Founding member and past President of American Society of Endodontics.
“Research has demonstrated that 100% of all root canals result in residual infection due to the imperfect seal that allows bacteria to penetrate. The toxins given off by these bacteria enter the bloodstream and generate disease.” Dr. Edward Arana, D.D.S.
“Root canals are a zillion times worse than and more toxic than mercury fillings. These toxins can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidney, uterus, and nervous and endocrine systems.” Dr. Hal Huggins.
Just as mercury fillings (amalgam) as a source of disease is not widely accepted, and many dentists have experienced persecution for exposing this fact, the same is true about the toxic and deadly possibilities associated with root canals.
How common are root canals? Do you believe this is really a problem for many people? Have YOU had a root canal? How about anyone in your family? Your friends? The ADA has set the goal of dentists performing 60 million root canals per year. The Toxic Element Research Foundation (TERF) found that 90% of people with non-responsive diseases have root canals. In 2005, according to the CDC almost one out of two adults have at least one chronic disease.
Dr. Josef Issels of Germany found that in 40 yrs, 97% of his cancer patients had received root canals and he wouldn’t initiate treatment until all root canals had been removed.
The following graphics are the personal testimony of one of my friends from midwifery school. She tells the story of what happened as she was having a root canal, and then in two consecutive visits to correct the accident that happened during the initial root canal with her dentist.
She told me this story when we were discussing how to get rid of a splinter. She was talking about the small molecular structure of Lavender oil and it’s capabilities.
Here is a video clip of Dr. Mercola talking about the dangers of root canals:
