Other Factors

  • Alcohol and Your Heart
    Alcohol may have some health benefits, including lowering the risk for heart disease, but it may also lead to abusive drinking and other diseases.
  • Get to the Heart of Oral Health
    Evidence is mounting that people with periodontal (gum) disease may be more at risk for heart disease and stroke.
  • Heart Disease: Keep Your Gums Healthy
    People with gum disease are more likely to have heart disease than people with healthy gums.
  • Inflammation: The Body's New Bad Guy
    Chronic inflammation damages the inside of coronary arteries and leaves them prone to plaque that clogs the blood vessels. That leads to clots that cause heart attacks.
