Did George Meinig have it right when he wrote ‘The Root Canal Cover-Up back in 1993?  Yes and no.  The reason I say this is explained below, so keep reading. In his book, Meinig highlights the research done by Westin Price a century ago demonstrating how root canal infections cause other health conditions and illnesses in the body.  Price was most famous for his rabbit experiments, where he implanted root canal teeth from his patients into rabbits and tracked how that animal fared afterward.  What he observed was that the rabbits got sick and in many cases died as a result.  After observing this scores of times, he coined the phrase ‘focal infection’, which basically means that the bacteria in one part of the body can affect or cause illness in another part of the body.
