• CDC Issues Public Health Warning for Fluoride Toothpaste

    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 40 percent of children between the ages of 3 and 6 use potentially dangerous amounts of toothpaste. The CDC and American Dental Association (ADA) recommend using no more than a pea-sized amount for children in this age group, and those younger than 3 should use no more than the size of a rice grain on their toothbrush. The problem with using excessive amounts of toothpaste has to do with the fluoride it contains. If you look closely, you’ll find fluoride-containing toothpastes have a warning on their label stating that “If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.” This warning was made mandatory for fluoride-containing dental products by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April, 1997. Ironically, while swallowing toothpaste is recognized as a cause for concern, we’re supposed to believe that drinking fluoridated water at any quantity is not only safe but beneficial for our teeth.

    I’ve read that supplementing boron, besides the other great reasons for doing this, can flush fluoride and other harmful metals/toxins from our bodies. It’s something to look into, IMO. I’ve read and learned quite a bit myself, and just started supplementing with it so. time will tell. If anyone knows any factual information on this, I sure would like to hear about it.
