Mouthwash overuse may lead to mouth and throat cancer
Washington: A new study has revealed that using mouthwash more than three times a day increases the risk of mouth and throat cancer.
The study found that poor oral health and failure to have regular dental checks increased the risk of mouth and throat cancer.
Prof Wolfgang Ahrens, of the Bremen Institute for Prevention Research and Social Medicine in Germany said that the possible role of mouthwash as a causative factor would require further research.
Earlier studies have found that found some mouthwashes were more dangerous than wine or beer because they contained higher concentrations of alcohol, as high as 26 per cent proof.
