Hidden Epidemic

Hidden Epidemic: Silent Oral Infections Cause Most Heart Attacks and Breast Cancers, by Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD

A new Netflix movie, Root Cause, has been receiving a wide range of online reviews. The movie details a man’s 10 year search for the underlying cause of his chronic illnesses. As he discovers, root canals and oral infections contributed greatly to his illnesses.

Online reviews range from thought-provoking to critical, to dismissive, many commentators bemoaning the “lack of scientific evidence” to support the radical allegations made in Root Cause. However, there is scientific evidence showing the link between root canals and multiple health issues, as provided in a new book from Dr. Thomas Levy.

Dr. Levy is a board-certified cardiologist and a bar-certified attorney. After practicing adult cardiology for 15 years, he began to research the enormous toxicity with much dental work. He has written eleven books, with several addressing the wide-ranging properties of vitamin C in neutralizing all toxins and resolving most infections, as well as its vital role in the effective treatment of heart disease and cancer. Others address the important roles of dental toxicity and nutrition in disease and health. His eleventh book, Hidden Epidemic: Silent Oral Infections Cause Most Heart Attacks and Breast Cancers, was published in September of 2017.

Dr. Levy’s book, as the title states, discusses the research showing the link between infections in your mouth, gums, jawbones, and sinuses and chronic disease, especially heart disease and cancer. Significantly, the statements made in Hidden Epidemic are supported by extensive research, all of which is listed as references in the book for its readers.

To answer the critics of Root Cause, Dr. Levy’s book provides all the supporting documentation to show the harm caused by root canals. Watch the movie – read the book. Read the supporting studies. Arm yourself with key information before going to the dentist.
