Your Mouth Is The Gateway To Your Body.

Do you know that....
1.The mouth is the Gate way to the body?
2.Just looking into your mouth one can tell the general state of your health?
3. 90% of diseases that affect your body shows signs in your mouth?
4. Mouth odour has a cause?
5. Gum disease can affect your general wellbeing?

Here are a couple of diseases that are traceable to bacteria from the mouth. 

1. Cardiovascular diseases: Bacteria from the mouth when ingested can lead to arteriosclerosis which is the blockage of arteries leading to the heart thereby making blood flow to the heart difficult

2. Erectile Dysfunction: Bacteria from the mouth can also block veins responsible for sending blood to the penile region thereby making it turgid. Due to the blockage, less blood flows thereby causing weak and unsustainable erection.

Questions are welcome

  • Most of the food we diseases we contact is through our mouth.

    The more we eat food that are of small nutrient(undernutrition) or too much nutrient(overnutrition) we're liable to disease.

    The more we intake sugar or starchy foods the more we're liable to diabetes mellitus.

    The more we take in too much of carbohydrates we're liable kwashiorkor and other related disease.

    And the more we take in good and nutritious food the more healthy we are.

    The mouth is definitely the gateway to the body

  • I am also a medical student, though not a dentist. But you are on point. We have skin, anus, nose, mouth, eyes as portals of microorganisms entery. The diseases they cause also reflects on their portal of entery.

  • Indeed, mouth is a gateway to the body but beside mouth, there are other gateways in which one can be infected with disease through it. Skin is one of the gateways, which allows passage of disease to a one's body. Skin also allows some diseases to come out from a body.

    Beside mouth and skin, nose also plays a role in allowing passages of diseases into a body, especially in it's fluid form or gas.

  • Yes, I agree with you. Our mouth is the gateway to our body, not only the getway but the passage to our body. Mouth is like input unit of the computer and our hand as input device. It is what you put in that you will get and it obey the word garbage in garbage out. 

    Our mouth must be kept clean all the time and also be conscious of what we eat always.

  • I truly believe that,the mouth is the gateway to the body,whatever that goes to the body goes through the mouth, it's either to destroy or to repair,some of the things we eat like junk food,causes alot of damage to the body through the mouth,and besides,most people eat late night and go to bed with soured mouth thereby causing damage to the teeth.

  • Sicknesses and diseases will not be our portion, but we need to watch what we put in to our mouth I.e what we eat and to keep to health tips and instructions.
