Is Your Toothpaste Loaded With Toxins?

Is Your Toothpaste Loaded With Antifreeze?

 Here's an article that re-enforces yesterday's post.  It makes you wonder whether anything is safe to use these days.

  • A recent report highlights many of the problems in the regulation of cosmetic ingredients. The industry is allowed to largely regulate itself, which has allowed many hazardous ingredients to be introduced
  • Harmful and potentially toxic and/or carcinogenic ingredients commonly found in toothpaste include: fluoride, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, carrageenan, propylene glycol, diethanolamine and microbeads
  • Other questionable and potentially hazardous ingredients include artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives and GMO-derived ingredients
