In the U.S., about 10 million people die every year from dental decay.
And according to a new study, one in five Americans has used mouthwash that contains Listerines or other antibacterial agents at some point in their life.
Listerina and other Listerin products are now used to clean mouth, throat and esophagus in more than 100 countries.
But Listerinia has been implicated in causing a number of serious adverse reactions.
L.A. County has recorded a whopping 5,600 deaths from Listeria-related illnesses, including an outbreak in 2014 in which the county saw an increase in cases of serious infections.
The most recent case, in 2017, killed four people, and there were a number more who were hospitalized with serious illnesses.
The latest research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Friday found that a third of people who used mouthwashes containing Listerins reported experiencing serious or even fatal infections.
Among those who tested positive, the risk of death was nearly double the national average, the study found.
The researchers used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics and other sources to estimate that there were 1,813 confirmed cases of Listeriosis and 2,069 deaths in the U,D.C. area from March through September 2017.
Listed in the study as “prescriptions for mouthwash containing L. species” were mouthwash brands that contain L. and were included in the list.
One brand, Oasis, was the most popular, with more than 5 million prescriptions for mouthwash containing L., according to the study.
A total of 3,735 cases of “severe” infections were reported, including pneumonia, bloodstream infection, blood clotting, liver failure and liver damage, according to Dr. James C. Miller, lead author of the study and professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Those cases were mostly caused by the bacterium.
In the report, the researchers described Listerinus erythrophis as the most common Listerinoid-caused disease in the United States, and it had been the leading cause of hospitalization and death in the nation between 2002 and 2017.
The group was able to estimate the rates of infections in the population at large by looking at information from the U.,D. C. Medicaid database.
That information included information on the types of infections, the duration of infections and how long they lasted.
LISTERINES ARE THE MOST COMMON BABY BREAKFAST BAG The researchers also looked at the incidence of severe infections in children, adults and those over the age of 65.
They found that Listerinis accounted for nearly half of all severe infections, and their numbers were nearly triple the national rate.
The number of severe cases among those over 65 increased from 3,638 in 2017 to 4,068 in 2018.
The authors noted that the Listerini-related infections in older adults are “especially concerning,” because their health and well-being are affected by their daily use of mouthways containing Listers.
They are the most likely to die of these infections, because the infection can cause liver damage and even death.
The risk of hospitalizations and deaths from infection was also much higher among children, and they also had the highest rate of hospital admissions.
The rate of severe infection among adults increased from 6 percent to 8 percent between 2017 and 2018.
But the rates were still higher than the national level, the authors noted.
In addition to its potentially dangerous effects, Listerinos have been found to be harmful to the mouth and throat.
Listers can cause problems with the lungs and digestive tract, and are also associated with severe infections of the urinary tract and urinary bladder.
One of the most well-known and well studied of these conditions, listeriosis, has been linked to many serious conditions including pneumonia and bronchitis, according the CDC.
But in the vast majority of cases, L. does not cause any of these problems.
LISTING THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS Listerinas presence in the body is linked to numerous adverse effects, including: a significant increase in the risk for serious infections
