Just When You Thought Your Toothpaste Was Safe to Use ....
So you think your toothpaste is healthy, safe to use, and carcinogenic free? Well, we hate to break it to you, there is a roughly 99.9% chance you are wrong, er... misinformed... Lied to!
To be more specific: unless you use a 100% natural, SLS-free toothpaste, you are most definitely endangering, not only your dental health but the entirety of your physical wellness, as well.
Commercial-Brand Toothpaste is Full of Chemicals
For those of you who are unaware, all of the most popular brands of toothpaste contain chemical compounds, some of which can be fatal if ingested. Don't believe us? Well, don't take our word for it... Take the word of your favorite brand of toothpaste by looking at its packaging.
"...On EVERY box of commercial-brand toothpaste you will find a warning label that warns its loyal customers: not to "accidently ingest" the toothpaste inside due to its potentially fatal-causing ingredients..."
Okay, so let's just bypass the whole, "this is why popular brands of toothpaste is not good for you" bit by going through each and every ingredient and specifying their individual, particular toxicity. That would take entirely too long, as there are far too many to name one-by-one.
Instead, let's sum it all up by bluntly stating one obvious, point-of-fact and subsequent 'rule of thumb' to follow: One shouldn't buy an oral cleansing product, if said oral cleansing product (AKA Commercial-brand Toothpaste), is toxic if/when ACCIDENTLY SWALLOWED!
That would be like buying an umbrella that came with a government regulated, CAUTION: may fatally electrocute user if/WHEN "overly-soaked!"
While Most Claim All-Natural, Most Claims Are Suspect
Mark Kastel, co-founder of Cornucopia Institute - a group that campaigns for organic agriculture - says there are some kinds of toothpaste, dishonestly labeled as "all-natural," and "better for you options." Mr. Kastel goes on to warn prospective buyers that these deceitfully labeled, faux-natural brands of toothpastes are being sold, by and large, at specialty markets, such as Whole Foods.

Mark warns prospective customers that - in spite of their box's claims of "being 100% all-natural" and "safe to use" - many specialty market toothpaste brands like, 'Kiss My Face,' and Est'ee Laurder's 'Go Smile Luxury Toothpaste,' actually contain "materials you wouldn't want to ingest."
