Have you ever read the fine print on a tube of toothpaste off the shelf of your grocery store or drugstore? You may recognize some of the ingredients that we mentioned in the top toxins post, but here are a few we haven’t covered yet --
You would think that because we use toothpaste in our mouths, all toothpastes would be safe to swallow, but if you’ve read the back of your toothpaste label recently, you will find that is just not the case. The inside of our mouths are the quickest way to absorb ingredients. Absorption applies to toothpaste, mouthwash, medications, and anything else that enters our mouths.
Choosing a toothpaste & mouthwash with safe ingredients is a great way to avoid absorbing toxic ingredients like those in conventional toothpaste.
