NPR
Many online journals are ready to publish bad research in exchange for a credit card number. That's the conclusion of an elaborate sting carried out by Science, a leading mainline journal.

Link between oral health, heart disease
Florida Today
See your dentist to prevent a heart attack? Recently, the research journals and popular press have been pointing to a connection between oral health and hygiene and cardiovascular risk. Although there are several mediators, one stands out: periodontal or gum disease. The Journal of Periodontology reported that inflammatory effects from periodontal disease, a chronic bacterial infection of the gums, cause oral bacterial byproducts to enter the bloodstream and trigger the liver to produce substances that increase the risk of heart disease.
