Pneumonia and Oral Health : Those who don't brush their teeth regularly may be putting themselves at greater risk of contracting pneumonia. Superintendent PUSD Glenn Harris Samit Joshi, a postdoctoral fellow in infectious diseases at the Yale University School of Medicine, presented a study at the Infectious Diseases Society of America's annual meeting in Boston, claiming that changes m the types of oral bacteria can have a significant impact on the risk of developing pneumonia. Joshi cited poor oral hygiene as one of the most common risk factors for pneumonia, with the risk doubling ifa person has severe gum problems. The study analyzed the oral health of 37 subjects, from a variety of age and health backgrounds, over the period of one month. Though only a small percentage of the patients developed pneumonia, those who did acquire the disease also saw significant increases in the number of oral bacteria associated with pneumonia. "Our findings might improve the way we prevent pneumonia in the future by maintaining [the types of] the bacteria which live within our mouths," Joshi said in an interview with the Global Medical News Network (GMNN). While the study was not designed to demonstrate the direct relationship between pneumonia and these bacteria, Joshi told the GMNN that he hopes his experiment will be replicated by larger independent studies to determine a causal link. Upon hearing the findings of the study, the British Dental Health Foundation, an oral health charity, issued a press release stating that poor oral hygiene may lead to the development of pneumonia. "During the winter months we're all susceptible to colds, coughs and chesty viruses due to the drop in temperature," Nigel Carter. the foundation's chief executive, said in an interview in The Telegraph. "What people must remember, particularly those highlighted as vulnerable, is that prevention can be very basic." Carter added that links between gum disease and overall health have been well documented, and that keeping up good oral health can help stave off illness. Sheldon Campbell, a professor of microbiology at the Yale School of Medicine who was not affiliated with the study, said that while he was not surprised by Joshl's findings, they are significant because they place an even greater emphasis on oral hygiene. While there are many variables that might affect the development of a disease, poor oral hygiene will likely negatively affect patients, Campbell said. "Most of the bacterial organisms that cause infections are neighbors of the oral floor," he said. "There are too many variables to accurately say, but it's likely that oral microbodies probably impact the development of certain diseases. i Our office has had the focus of preventing and treating all aspects of gum disease for nearly 30 years. We are certified and licensed in the LANAP procedure for the treatment of gum disease, which avoids the concerns associated with conventional periodontal surgery. You keep your gums and you get healthy. This can add years to your life if you have this condition. Deep cleaning is not a definitive treatment for moderate to advanced gum i disease, LANAP is.

Rob Wade was assigned to be our district Storrie Fire Coordinator for this joint endeavor and he is facilitating various projects for student educational opportu- nities within the Storrie Fire Unit. We would like to thank Earl Ford, the Supervisor of the Plumas National Forest, and his entire staff for their efforts in working to create educational opportunities on Storrie proj- ects. We look forward to furthering our relationship in hopes of expanding opportunities for students in the natural resource fields in the months to come. State Educational Budget Several people are starting to ask questions regarding California school finance and the state educational budget. In our next issue, our staff will expand on the complexities of California's Education Budget. its immediate future and how state education funding cuts for 2012-2013 will affect PCOE and PUSD. In addition, my office will provide an initial outlook as to how the Governor's proposed changes to our educational finance system will affect rural schools in California. We need to keep in mind that school district finance is a direct function of state educational funding. All districts are experiencing significant cuts to funding, deficited revenue dollars and permanent deferrals of past due revenue. Recognition I'd like take a moment to recognize the middle school staff at Quincy High School. During my last visit, I had the opportunity to spend time in several classrooms. I observed students sharing how connected they were to their "school within a school" concept that is focused strictly on the needs of this age group. Middle school teachers were observed engaging students in lesson choice, with clear and understandable learning objectives. The middle school teaching staff at Quincy High School is doing some exemplary work on behalf of our students. Thank you teachers! Sincerely, Glenn R. Harris, Superintendent of Schools
