Root Canals Do Not Cause Cancer

DF2 Uncategorized

Do root canals cause cancer? In short, no. This discredited idea has been making the rounds of the internet since an article published by Dr. Joseph Mercola on his website -instead of a reputable journal – in 2012. Dr. Mercola subscribes to many crackpot ideas (doctors can be deluded just like anyone else). His article was based on research conducted a century ago and since disproven. Recent research actually shows a lower risk of cancer in people who have had a root canal.
