Oh yes, you heard right, most baby toothpaste contains SACCHARIN! Apparently they don't have to warn us about this because we "Don't actually CONSUME it" WHATEVER! Babies swallow this stuff ALL the time!!!!
This makes me angry, I immediately checked my babies brands, and for my nine month old daughter I was using Orajel baby teeth and gum cleanser, and YES... SACCHARIN!!! Eeek!! So now it's just Grins and Giggles from Gerber! At least there is someone in the baby business we can trust!!
SACCHARIN.... In 1959, the United States Congress amended the Food, Drugs, and Cosmetic Act of 1938 with the Delaney clause to mandate that Food and Drug Administration not approve substances which "induce cancer in man, or, after tests, found to induce cancer in animals." Studies in laboratory rats during the early 1970s linked saccharin with the development of bladder cancer in rodents. Consequently all food containing saccharin was labeled with a warning.Answer Question
