Bacteria making fats cause heart disease

I posted this on my facebook page a little while back but forgot to post it here on the site.

Fascinating new research in the search to find the cause of heart disease. Bacteria in your mouth secrete lipids that cause plaque build up. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why more research is showing how sugar is more detrimental to your health than fats. Bacteria (usually) love sugar so the more sugar you eat, the more “bad” bacteria in your mouth which may contribute to higher bacterial lipids floating around in your arteries-> causing heart disease.
