The lost prognosticator of poor health

As markers go, I would like to evaluate oral health, and compare it to what we are currently using. I’ll bet poor oral health is better than high cholesterol as a harbinger of bad health. Dentists and doctors do not share data: too bad – the cross-fertilization potential is significant.

As deficiencies are one of the major types of hits in the multi-hit a-causal model of disease: If the salivary glands have low priority on key nutrients, then saliva is one of the better places to look for local nutrient deficiencies, much better than both the vital organs and the circulatory system (whose deficiencies in part explain high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and even high blood sugar), both of which have to have a higher priority on limited nutrients.
