Think about it.
- Hair care products: mousse, styling gel, etc.
- Soap or Bath Gel
- Anti-bacterial soap
Did you know that most of these products, found in grocery stores and drug stores nationwide, contain at least one of the five known toxins in personal care products?
Read the labels! When was the last time you read the ingredients of your favorite toothpaste?
The most common toxins to look for are:
- sodium fluoride
- sodium lauryl sulfate
- FD&C Blue Dyes #1 and 2
- and hydrated silica.
Why is this so important to know?
- The mouth has the fastest and most efficient absorption rate, 90%, of any part of the human body.
- That’s why some medicines are administered sublingually…via the mouth…for faster absorption.
- And the mouth will absorb medicines as well as toxins equally as efficient, it doesn’t discern.
- These toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly and then transported to major organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, brain and heart.
Following is a list of each toxin along with a brief explanation of its use and potential side effects.
Sodium Flouride: contained in rat poison and toothpaste.
According to the Flouride Action Network, 95% of toothpastes and mouthwashes on the market contain fluoride.
Dentists have been recommending fluoride for decades to prevent cavities, even though fluoride has never been approved by the Food and Drug Administration!
Unfortunately, there is enough fluoride in one swirl of toothpaste to be toxic to little ones. Most people don’t know that only a “pea-size” amount of toothpaste is recommended for children.
It’s not just toothpaste and mouthwash that contain flouride. Most cities across the country have fluoridated the public water supplies.
