There is a lot of online chatter suggesting a link between root canals and cancer, and other harmful diseases. This originated from the research of Weston Price, a dentist in the early 20th century who ran a series of tests, that had a lot of flaws and bias. This has been perpetuated by the documentary “The Root Cause” suggesting that teeth that have undergone root canal therapy still harbour incredibly harmful toxins. According to Price and the documentary, these toxins act as a breeding ground cancer, arthritis, heart disease, and other conditions. Joseph Mercola, a doctor who follows Price’s research, has made some serious claims about root canals and their link to cancer.
