  • Kinda scary stuff! I switched to Melaleuca's toothpaste a few years ago - all natural - has Melaleuca oil in it - which fights gingivitis and is sweetened with xylitol which has been proven to prevent tooth decay and actually helps rebuild enamel. You can either get it with or without fluoride - I chose no fluoride (more nasty stuff) - and was worried when we went to our dentist appointment (6 months late) - I've always been told to use fluoride to prevent cavities - was sure the kids and I were going to have them - actually - the dentist was very impressed with the health and of our teeth and gums and how clean our teeth were - No cavities and barely any cleaning time :) - my dentist is now using this toothpaste too:)

  • i have a child with autism
    have found my life revolves around trying to avoid chemicals that can make her autism traits worse
    what is in US food is nightmare causing
    everywhere you turn (look around you) everything is make from chemicals, things you would have no idea what they are and what these chemicals are doing to young bodies and minds (us old people too)
    you do not have to see a child have reaction to chemicals to know that those same chemicals are affecting all others, just not in a way that shows in an obvious way
    thanks for the toothpaste link

  • lambdarose- The report was from the FDA. Switch to crest,no fears using that. It is very scary for those of us who have had cancer and won the battle!
