Fluoride, especially the kind added to most brands of toothpaste, is a toxic hazardous waste!
Take a look at your toothpaste. Seriously, go ahead and read it, I will wait. See where it says if you swallow more than a pea sized amount call the poison control center? This is not a big pea size, this is a tiny pea size. How often do you think you have swallowed that amount? Do you, or anyone you know use a pea sized amount on your toothbrush? Even the commercials show a huge glob on every brush.
“But I rinse” you might say. I hope you are rinsing well, but even so, are you left with the taste of toothpaste in your mouth? How much are you ingesting?
Remember when you were a kid? Did you swallow toothpaste or rinse it all out? I would just spit it out and swallow what was left. I like the way it made my throat feel cool. My parents (and most parents) had no idea of the dangers of fluoride in toothpaste. They believed the commercials and never read the box.
Reader discression is advised
The fluoride added to drinking water and toothpaste is a crude industrial waste product of the aluminum and fertilizer industries, and in many cases all the way from CHINA. Even worse, it is NOT EVEN TESTED!
“Fluoride science is corporate science. Fluoride science is DDT science. It’s asbestos science. It’s tobacco science. It’s a racket.” – Christopher Bryson, Author of “The Fluoride Deception”
The point here is, that even if you believe fluoride is good for teeth, you probably want to avoid it as much as possible. I wish this was easy, but it is even in many bottled waters (the same industrial waste).
“What is the danger”?
I have a more comprehensive article on Fluoride, but it is such a deep “rabbit hole”, it may take some time to get it all in. It seems clear that fluoride builds up in the brain, lowering IQ and causing many other problems.
For now, realize the dangers of fluoride in toothpaste. If you choose to leave it in, fine, but I recommend you go without. There are a some good products on the market, but you may need to go online to get it. I no longer trust Tom’s of Maine as it is now owned by Colgate-Palmolive. Big surprise, many of their toothpastes are no longer fluoride free.
If you think I am wrong about the dangers of fluoride in toothpaste (or right), please leave me some feedback below.
