Cranberries are some sought of plants that will ever remain green irrespective of the season. They are known to produce heterogeneous products that include; sauce, jam, and juices. Research has established that cranberries are highly nutritious and can be used as antioxidants. Therefore, it can be used for medicinal values if blended well by qualified physicians (Skinner, Margot, and Denise, 131). The positive social impacts of the use of fruit as antioxidants are; the effects they have on the human body since not all the researches have been ascertained when used for the purposes of periodontal diseases. They have added value in people’s lives since they form some supplements due to their nutritious nature.
The negative impacts of the plant are the uncertainty of whether it has any side effects on the gums, availability of toxins or emission bad breathe. People are either affected positively or negatively by its incorporation in the dental health (Pizzorno, Joseph and Michael, 242). Very few people know the use of cranberries in treatment of periodontal diseases, therefore, would never have a negative attitude towards it if they are used for medicinal values. The negative part is that different people react to different medicine thus can trigger some reactions in the body that lead to the production of chemicals to help fight the antigens.
The effects could be related to the social nature by identifying the frequency of teeth brushing among the people (Skinner, Margot, and Denise, 96). The people with the knowledge of its existence would develop a negative attitude towards it if the people treated with it fail to brush their teeth hence; their bad breath. Nevertheless, the topic is not well known to the public due to their reduced interest in knowing new discoveries or contents of a certain medicine. The researchers have not made the information well known to the people because they fear being criticized of their unfounded findings.
