Total dietary fat, animal fat, vegetable fat and saturated fat were also all associated with lower levels of arsenic, while omega 3 fatty acids, such as those found in fish oil, were associated with increased arsenic.

Consuming Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids May Lower the Incidence of Gum Disease

Research found that n-3 fatty acid intake, particularly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), are inversely associated with periodontitis in the US population. Research shows an approximately 20% reduction in periodontitis prevalence in those subjects who consumed the highest amount of dietary DHA and significantly reduced odds of periodontal disease were observed at relatively modest intakes of DHA and EPA.
