Even moderate amounts of omega-3 fats may help ward off gum disease, according to new research.
Researchers divided nearly 9,200 adults into three groups based on their omega-3 consumption.
Dental exams showed that those in the middle and upper third for consumption of the omega-3's DHA and EPA were 23 percent to 30 percent less likely to have gum disease.
Business Week reports:
"About 54 percent of men and 46 percent of women over age 30 in the United States experience gingival bleeding, the earliest sign of periodontal disease ... In the general population, about 11 percent of adults aged 50 to 64 have moderate or severe periodontitis, rising to 20 percent of those over age 75."
