Dr. Weston Price
Dr. Weston Price was a brilliant dentist and researcher who studied the relationship between nutrition, dental and physical health. In their studies, Dr. Price and the Mayo Clinic discovered that bacterial growth in root canals could be transferred to animals to recreate the same diseases the human donor. Their tests proved successful in 80 to 100% of the animals. In particular, heart disease could be transferred 100% of the time . It’s shocking to find out that as far back as 1910 Dr. Price and the Mayo Clinic found that bacteria and the toxins from root canals could enter the bloodstream and thus travel to any point in the body and create disease to that particular tissue or organ. Price went on to discover that numerous degenerative diseases have their origin in root canal procedures, the most frequent are circulatory and heart disease. Although his research was buried and hidden from the public in the 1920’s, Dr. George Meinig would discover his work 70 years later and bring it to the forefront through his book, Root Canal Cover Up.
Basic Tooth Anatomy
A tooth has multiple layers, the enamel is the outer layer, the second layer is the dentin and the inner core is the pulp. Tiny fibers come out of the tooth and intertwine with fibers coming out of the bone, and they unite to form what is called the periodontal ligament. The dentin layer is not solid, but is actually comprised of tiny dentinal tubules, that if stretched would be approximately three miles long.
This is an excellent place for bacteria to hide and develop. In fact when Weston Price did his research, this is exactly where he found anaerobic bacteria in the thousands of teeth he tested. Since it is impossible to sterilize these accessory canals it becomes a haven for bacteria to grow and develop. As bacteria multiply and create infection it will oftentimes extend down into the jawbone where it creates cavitations—areas of necrotic tissue in the jawbone itself.
