Do you ever wonder what compels a person to take and refute decades of “established” research all in the name of helping humanity?
We recently came across a new piece of information about one of our heroes, Dr. Weston A Price.
Many readers of this blog will already be familiar with who Dr. Price was and the gift to humanity his research continues to provide. After all, we couldn’t perform this research now as we don’t have the isolated cultures still intact!
While most of us are now familiar with the research Dr. Price performed with isolated cultures that he highlighted in his landmark book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, some of you may not be aware of the research Dr. Price did with embedding root canal teeth under the skin of rabbits. What could have provoked Dr. Price to conduct this study? What could have compelled a practicing dentist to shift his focus to research? Read on…
As a practicing dentist, Dr. Price once performed a root canal on a 16 year old young man. This young man died of a heart attack shortly thereafter. Dr. Price then removed the root canal tooth from the young man who had the fatal heart attack (after he died) and embedded just the tip of one of the roots of the tooth under the skin on the belly of a rabbit.
Two weeks later, that rabbit died of a heart attack. Dr. Price then removed the root tip from the dead rabbit and again embedded the root tip under the skin of a second rabbit. Two weeks later, the second rabbit died from a heart attack. Over the course of many months, Dr. Price took that same single root tip and embedded it under the skin of 100 rabbits. All 100 rabbits died within approximately 2 weeks, all from heart attack.
100 out of 100? All of the same cause of death???
Clearly, realizing that his dental work had caused the death of this young man provoked Dr. Price to shift the direction of his whole life’s work.
Over the course of next 35 years, Dr. Price relentlessly studied the impact that the mouth has on the health of the whole body. He experimented on over 60,000 rabbits (I know, I’m not a fan of animal testing either, but since it’s already been done, let us all learn from the work).
Dr. Price found a correlation between the dental work and whole body diseases. He found that heart attacks are one of the diseases that transferred 100% of the time. But he also found that many other diseases transferred from an embedded root canal tooth to a rabbit. Some of these diseases only transferred 88% of the time. Diseases like arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, the list is long…
How do we know that the death of this young man deeply impacted Dr. Price? Well, he dedicated one of his textbooks to this young man Donald. Donald Price.
Yes, Weston Price did a root canal on his own son who then died of a heart attack. It’s clear to me as a father that feeling the responsibility for the death of one’s own child would drive a person like Weston Price to make researching the impact the mouth has on the health of the whole body one’s life mission.
We encourage us all to learn from this so the death of a child and the relentless pursuit of the truth over the course of 35 years of research doesn’t go wasted. May we be inspired by this person who was able to take tragedy and redirect that energy into a work so that we could live healthier lives.
Knowledge is power.

Last year i had a root canal on my molar, i would like to get rid of it. What are my options? Dental implant? Remove it and leave a gup?
Thank you very much!

Yes, a dental implant is the permanent solution after the root canal tooth is removed. Be sure to ONLY go to a dentist that uses safe materials. https://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/dental-implants/
You can also have a single tooth partial denture (most people don’t like them) or just leave a gap (but this risks collapse of the surrounding teeth after about 5 years).

My integrative doctor for autoimmune disease told me to get my root canal tooth out, so I had it removed. It still had a major infection going on in there. I’m so glad I pulled it.

I guess there’s an advantage to not having any teeth.

Ok…. so this article tells us that he did a root canal and the son died of a heart attack….. where’s the facts? Where’s the substance?? Why did the root canal cause the heart attack??????

I would like to see more peer-reviewed studies here. Those two articles were pretty unsatisfying.

I had one done in November of 2013. Will someone please share a link with me on what action I need to take now to try to keep from getting sick? And if there’s not anything I can I do to prevent future sickness from it, then what should my action be on getting it removed?
