WHAT'S WRONG WITH COMMERCIAL TOOTHPASTE?
This is a byproduct of industrial waste (believe it or not). Manufacturing companies thought that they would sell this to utility companies, since it was costly to dispose of, and add it to our water. Since natural fluoride can have an effect on slowing down tooth decay, dentists and toothpaste manufacturers became part of the ploy.This was all done under the guise of preventing tooth decay. These companies had good marketing skills and despite being internationally recognized as a poison, fluoride is still blindly recommended by dentists as a preventative measure for tooth decay.
Sodium fluoride which is found in most commercial toothpaste causes demineralisation by removing the calcium from teeth which in the long term discolors them and makes them brittle.
People ingest this artificial sweetener without realizing the harm to their health. Saccharin was banned in the 70’s because it proved to cause severe health problems to rats in laboratories. However, because people liked the taste the ban was lifted.
This is used in many products to make suds. In toothpaste it’s used as a thickening agent. It makes your mouth feel that something exciting is happening especially if menthol is added.
Remember that toothpaste doesn’t clean your teeth. It’s the scrubbing motion of the brush that does that. Electric toothbrushes also do the important job of stimulating your gums.
Both the University of Mary Washington and North Washington Health Sciences University warn that SLS attacks the mucus membranes in the mouth, altering the structure of the skin. Some people believe that SLS allows more chemicals and toxins to enter the body by modifying skin structure. These chemicals may include other ingredients in toothpaste, or materials found in mouthwash or other cleansing products. This greater volume of chemicals leads to an elevated level of toxins in the bloodstream, which impacts health.
SLS may be blamed for some cases of chronic bad breath. This chemical can contribute to an ailment called dry mouth, in which the mouth produces less saliva than it should.
Glycerin is put in toothpaste to make it smooth and less “chalky”. However, when your teeth are coated with glycerin, bacteria is encapsulated. This seemingly harmless ingredient coats your teeth and prevents re-enamalization. Teeth are designed to regenerate themselves but that cannot happen if they are coated.
Some dentists believe that teeth can regenerate enamel that has been destroyed by acids. However, your teeth need to be clean of all coatings in order to absorb the calcium and other minerals that can help protect them.
Avoid using any toothpaste containing glycerin.
