This may seem like a ridiculous question, but bear with us – there is actually a lot more to this than would initially meet the eye. Toothpastes that you buy from your local store are not dangerous in the way that a chain saw is, and they are not dangerous in the way that a fire is, but they certainly cause a huge amount of damage internally, where you cannot see it. That is because almost all toothpastes will contain chemicals in their ingredient lists that definitely should not be there: from pesticides to carcinogens, toothpastes really do contain them all.
This may sound a little far fetched, but just take a little look at your toothpaste’s ingredients list. The trouble is that many people do not understand what the chemical names actually mean, but a little research will definitely shock you. If you see triclosan, then you are brushing your teeth with toothpaste containing a pesticide. If you see diethanolamine, then you are brushing your teeth with toothpaste containing a chemical that has been proven to form cancer. If you see propylene glycol, then you are brushing your teeth with toothpaste that contains the same chemicals found in antifreeze . . . and unfortunately, the list goes on.
These toothpastes are dangerous. You may only consume a small amount of your toothpaste every day, but if you are brushing your teeth twice a day, every day, that soon adds up. The reason that we brush our teeth is to keep them healthy, and yet in the process we are accidentally poisoning ourselves! Take action now, and start to make your own toothpaste at home. It is really simple to do, and then you can be easy that there are no nasty, dangerous, and poisonous chemicals in your toothpaste.
