There are some things we take for granted. One of these things is what the American Dental Association says is okay to put in our mouths everyday, at least twice a day, several minutes at a time. I have followed the ADA’s instructions for dental hygiene for 50+ years, faithfully, dutifully, and trustingly. That is, until last night. Last night I read the back of the toothpaste container. What has me so upset, you ask? This: “Warning: Keep out of reach of children under 6 yrs. of age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away. Directions: Do not swallow.”
Do not swallow??? If swallowed, get medical help immediately??? This is toothpaste! I have a code of conduct that I like to live by. I don’t always achieve this goal, but I try. It is this, “Do not put anything in your mouth that you are not prepared to ingest.” Apparently, toothpaste is in the “do not ingest category” and I have been happily ingesting it for 50+ years.
The only active ingredient in this toothpaste that I have been gulping down by the brush full is Sodium Fluoride, a toxic waste. Yes, I did some studying after realizing I was being poisoned by toothbrush. This is the ADA wonder drug of choice for ‘fighting cavities.’ Excuse me, but it also is highly toxic. In fact, Sodium Fluoride is so toxic that the label on almost all toothpaste containers says, “Do not swallow. If swallowed, get medical help right away.”
Now some may call me a conspiracy theorist, but the fact that the American Dental Association has systematically been poisoning us for umpteen years under the cover of dental health does not persuade me to place trust in our ‘medical authorities.’ We are talking about toothpaste! Water is another story. City water contains, you’ve got it, Sodium Fluoride! This is the same ingredient in the toothpaste that is considered toxic if swallowed.
This is not a horror movie, nor is it science fiction. Our own ‘highly trusted’ and government approved medical authorities are poisoning us. Do you know that Ora-gel is advertising a “training toothpaste” that is “safe to swallow” and “contains no Sodium Fluoride?”
The conspiracy theorists are right; they are out to get us; death by dental hygiene. Here, drink this water by the gallon, every day, and brush your teeth with this, every day. When you contract some sort of incurable disease such as cancer don’t blame us, we told you not to swallow.
