We all know about the famous neurotoxin Fluoride in toothpaste, and these days major toothpaste brands are expected to be conniving. Nonetheless, they have lived up to the title. Recent studies have shown traces of another extremely harmful ingredient in major toothpaste brands!

Fluoride is used in all sorts of dental products. It is said to be a cleaning agent, but it is actually a malevolent poison. The American Dental Association believes it’s okay to use fluoride for preventative dental care, which is absolutely indiscernible considering the factual evidence of the harmful effects of fluoride. Over 95% of the toothpaste sold in the U.S. now contains fluoride, with many grocery stores carrying few if any non-fluoridated brands. The use of fluoride toothpaste, particularly during early childhood, presents health risks. This is why the FDA requires a poison warning on every tube of fluoride toothpaste now sold in the US.

Despite the already extremely harmful fluoride, toothpaste manufacturers have added another deadly chemical. The chemical goes by the name of triclosan. Studies have increasingly linked triclosan (and its chemical cousin triclocarban), to a range of adverse health and environmental effects from skin irritation, endocrine disruption, bacterial and compounded antibiotic resistance, to the contamination of water and its negative impact on fragile aquatic ecosystems. Several animal studies conducted on triclosan revealed that it has a major affect on the hormone balance of mammals. This means that it has an impact on male and female hormones such as testosterone and estrogen as well as our thyroid system. These days, you literally cannot trust any major corporation. The deceitfulness is unreal, and the people are taking a stand.

When introduced to the market in 1972, triclosan was confined to hospital and health care settings. Since then triclosan exploded onto the market place in hundreds of consumer products ranging from antibacterial soaps, deodorants, toothpaste, cosmetics, fabrics, toys, and other household and personal care products. Side effects include liver problems, depression, and even cancer!

As of 2015, Colgate Total, Janina Diamond Whitening Toothpaste and Reach Antibacterial Toothpaste contain triclosan. Breeze mouthwash is another dental product that contains the antibacterial agent. Triclosan is an effective antibacterial ingredient, but some people believe that it is harmful to the immune and endocrine systems if ingested. As the people of the world, we need to take a stand.
