Brush Your Teeth Now: Mouth Bacteria Speeds Growth Of Colon Cancer Tumors

The American Cancer Society says more than 100,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colon cancer in 2020.

Now, new research reveals that a particular bacteria found in the mouth may also help colon cancer spread to other organs in the body.

According to UPI, the bacteria, called Fusobacterium nucleatum, is one that causes tooth decay.

It also travels through the bloodstream to other organs in the body, leading to infections and allowing cancer cells to migrate or metastasize.
