You are more than likely are brushing your teeth with poison everyday. Take a look at your tube of toothpaste. It probably has a warning label to call poison control if it is swallowed. Why would something that you put in your mouth on a daily basis be poisonous? The reason is fluoride.
The fluoride compound, sodium fluoride, was first added to toothpaste in the early 1900s because it was thought to help prevent against tooth decay. However, when fluoride is ingested it can cause serious health risks, especially for young children.
Because of these adverse effects, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires a poison warning on every tube of fluoride toothpaste sold in United States. A study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine showed that the average person ingests around 33% of the toothpaste that is put on their toothbrush.
The health risks of fluoride include:
– tooth discoloration (dental fluorisis)
– stomach ailments
– acute toxicity
– skin rashes
– impairment of glucose metabolism
