Is Your Toothpaste Making You Sick?

Is Your Toothpaste Making You Sick?

Probably not, but read on.  You might be surprised.

Some people lately have suggested that those healthy brands of toothpaste that they sell at Trader Joes and Whole Foods might be actually worse for you than the regular old Crest or Colgate minty fresh brands.

But those people are wrong.  In fact, everything you thought you knew about toothpaste is wrong.  Read on.

Keep reading on.

This article is about toothpaste, and the truth about toothpaste.  The truth is a little more complicated than you might think.  Let’s look at the history of toothpaste, as that will take us to the next paragraph.

A form of toothpaste was actually used by the Ancient Greeks.  Socrates brushed his teeth with olive oil.

Seneca brushed his teeth with an extract of elm leaf.

Pliny the Younger used Pliny the Elder’s toothbrush and a family fight ensued.

So you see, toothpaste has been around a lot longer than you might think.  But is it harmful?  Clearly, it has chemicals in it.  Chemicals are bad.  We’re all fucked.  Help me.  Help me.

So, no, toothpaste probably won’t kill you.  Go ahead, brush those teeth.  But hey, get those fillings yanked out immediately.  They are full of lead and poisoning your blood. 

God help us all.
