Research Strengthens Association Between Oral Health And Alzheimer’s.
New Atlas (4/7, Lavars) reported that a study published earlier in the year found Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) may play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s. Now, researchers have “followed this line of investigation further,” exploring “the relationship between Pg and Alzheimer’s by examining brain samples of deceased subjects, both with and without the disease.” The researchers found “Pg to be much more common in the samples taken from those with Alzheimer’s, with its DNA fingerprint and key toxins called gingipains revealing its presence.”
HealthDay (4/8, Thompson) reported that Pg could enter the brain by being carried through the bloodstream or nervous system, according to lead researcher Dr. Jan Potempa, a professor at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in Kentucky. Dr. Potempa presented his research on Sunday, April 7, at the 2019 annual meeting of the American Association of Anatomists.

Tongue Condition May Offer Clues To Other Health Issues.
Reader’s Digest (5/7, Kloss) discusses how an inspection of the tongue may reveal a vitamin deficiency, yeast infection, normal aging, hormonal changes, stress, and more. The article says, for example, that a tongue that has “brown or black fuzz” on it may be a sign of “black and hairy tongue,” which is generally “not cause for major concern.” Reader’s Digest reports Ada Cooper, DDS, a spokesperson for the American Dental Association, said, “We have papilla, small bumps on the surface of our tongue, which grow throughout our lifetime.” The article adds that “papillae are normally worn down by chewing and drinking, but sometimes they can become overgrown, which makes them more likely to harbor bacteria or become discolored from food.” A physician quoted in the article says that black and hairy tongue typically stems from smoking or poor oral hygiene.

Many Popular E-Cigarette Products Contaminated With Bacterial, Fungal Toxins, Study Suggests.
NBC News (4/24) reports on its website that a new study demonstrates “dozens of popular e-cigarette products are contaminated with bacterial and fungal toxins that cause lung disease.” The impurities “were found in nearly a quarter of single-use e-cigarette cartridges and in over three quarters of e-liquids, the team at the Harvard School of Public Health found” after assessing “75 popular e-cigarette products.” The findings were published in Environmental Health Perspectives.
