    From The People’s Pharmacy:

    “The study identified a type of bacteria, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, that provokes the immune system into overreacting in both gum disease and severe arthritis. Doctors have long suspected a link between RA and periodontal infections, but they had not identified the responsible germ.”
