Using Mouthwash Too Often Raises Diabetes Risk, Study Says

A new study is warning mouthwash users to take it easy on the commonly used dental hygiene routine. Researchers at Harvard say using mouthwash products more than once a day can greatly increase your risk of developing diabetes.

Professor Kamudi Joshipura of Harvard’s School of Public Health says the fresh-tasting cleaners kill both harmful and helpful bacteria in the mouth; some of which protect the body against obesity and diabetes.
