Is toothpaste safe?
Most toothpastes today contain Sodium Fluoride; in fact it is sometimes difficult to find one that does not.
For many years, aluminum companies piled huge mountains of this toxic waste around the aluminum plants. The fluoride began seeping into the ground water and was killing farm crops and animals within a 15-mile radius around the manufacturing plants.
When it was proven that fluoride dumps were the problem, government regulators stepped in and forced these companies to find a safe method of storing this toxic waste.
This was a costly endeavor, so the companies put their scientists to work to find a “profitable” method of getting rid of the fluoride.
They successfully put a spin on an important, naturally occuring mineral called Fluorine, which is necessary for strong bones and teeth. After all, fluorine and fluoride sound quite a bit the same.
So they pulled a “bait and switch” on the public by hiring doctors to write reports saying that “fluoride” does the same thing as fluorine in small amounts.
They began selling this poison to toothpaste manufacturers, dentists and water districts. Now instead of paying a lot of money to store this material in drums, they created another stream of income by selling us poison to strengthen our teeth.
Fluoride actually unravels the genes in the bones and teeth and makes them weaker and more brittle. Fluoride affects the brain and makes people lethargic. It slows down the mental processes and can lead to symptoms of Alzheimer’s. It also causes thyroid diseases just to name a few.
Industries not only made millions from selling this environmental pollutant to water companies and toothpaste companies, but more importantly, it saved them billions of dollars that would have been required to clean up this environmental pollutant.
Another common poison in toothpaste is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.
In one study, 10 people with recurrent canker sores were given two different toothpastes to use, for three months each. One contained 1.2 percent sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and the other was SLS-free. Otherwise, the toothpastes were identical. When researchers compared participants in the study, they found that the group using the SLS-free paste had 64 percent fewer canker sores than the other group.
The problem again is, virtually all of the popular brands of toothpaste contain SLS.
Triclosan is another killer chemical that is found in toothpaste. Triclosan is so dangerous that it is measured in parts per trillion. One drop of triclosan in 30 olympic sized smimming pools would be one part per trillion.
I was looking on the label of a colgate toothpaste the other day in the grocery store and it showed .03% triclosan. That’s 3/100ths not 3/1,000,000,000,000ths. That’s enough to kill a horse and it is certainly not something that I would want to be putting in my mouth.
Another invisible, but potential danger in toothpaste is aluminum. Aluminum is not considered an active ingredient, but according to some reliable sources, as much as 95% of the filler found in most toothpaste is aluminum oxide. This is a white powder that is mildly abrasive and is the perfect base for making toothpaste.
Could Alzheimer’s be due in part to brushing with toothpaste? It seems plausible if not probable to a number of health experts.
Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemist, Researcher for 18 years and Professor of Chemistry for 33 yrs explains how brushing teeth with toothpaste takes 27 rinses to rinse off from teeth.
What is the alternative?
Dr. Norm Shealy, respected world-wide for his innovative and successful rehabilitation approach in over 30,000 dental patients, has long prescribed brushing teeth with soap, rather than toothpaste.
Personally, I have started using the NVRO Shave and Shower Gel. It only takes one drop and it leaves my mouth feeling squeaky clean.
NVRO 360 is naturally antbiotic and will kill about 99% of the bacteria in your mouth, so it is probably a hundred times better at preventing tooth decay than any toothpaste you could possibly use because bacteria is what causes tooth decay.
It is also much cheaper to use and if you want some flavor, you could just put some NVRO 360 in a small empty squeeze bottle and add a couple of drops of peppermint oil to give it some flavor.
NVRO 360 is unscented, so it really doesn’t taste bad the way it is, but some people prefer a little flavoring and NVRO 360 is totally safe in case your children happen to swallow some, it will not hurt them.
Combine this protocol with Oil Swishing and you may have the perfect combination for healthy teeth and gums that will save you a fortune in dental bills in the end.
