Hey Friends,

toothpast-warning

Hello Friends,

Imagine how I felt when I learned that I’ve been encountering carcinogens two (sometimes three) times per day, everyday, for as long as I can remember. Well, lets say I was not happy.  And my first instinct is to make sure and share this newly gained knowledge with all of you…

One of the carcinogens is Titanium dioxide.  It is also commonly listed on the ingredients as E171.  There are other chemicals used in most toothpastes that are also considered dangerous.

Reference the following articles:

This Cancerous Chemical is Being Commonly Used in Toothpastes

and

Is Your Toothpaste Full Of Carcinogens? Check this list…

I’m going to pick up some new Toothpaste today.  Check out this site for a complete report on safe toothpastes.

Also, as a friendly reminder – Colonoscopies can save your life!  A colonoscopy can prevent cancer. During this 15 minute procedure the doctor may encounter and remove precancerous polyps. And because more and more people (over 50) are getting colonoscopies, colon cancer is one of the few cancers that is trending down in people over 50. Very Important! If you are 50 or older, make sure to get this done.

  1. Phil,
    I, too, was shocked, saddened, and angered at discovering how many carcinogens and hormone-mimicking chemicals we are exposed to in everyday products – from personal care items, to household cleaners, to the foods we eat. If you’d like, I can share the information with you. I am committed to reducing our family’s exposure to these harmful substances.

      April, yes. Please do share. I just bought Dr. Bronners All-One Toothpaste from Earth Fare in Kzoo. Also curious if you are familiar with the FoodBabe.com site? She is a well know (and recognized) advocate for healthy consumer awareness. I’ve found her site very useful.
