4 Dangerous Ingredients In Toothpaste:

Today i’m going to reveal to you what’s ‘REALLY going on’ inside that innocent looking tube of toothpaste lurking beside your bathroom sink

But if the very thought of brushing your teeth with; rat poison, cancer causing agents, hormone modifiers, plastic and engine degreaser sends shivers down your spine (like it did me when I researched this)…

…Then you are going to find this article very enlightening and maybe even downright shocking! Lucky for you, that’s exactly what I’m going to share with you in this post today

 Dangerous ingredients in toothpaste 1: Engine Degreaser (AKA Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) 

what cleans your car engine… also cleans your teeth

degreaser Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (or SLS for short) is what makes toothpaste foam up in your mouth, this feature of toothpaste is great, but at what cost to your health?

SLS is a harsh chemical detergent, it’s used in industrial floor cleaner and to degrease engines, its also known to irritate, redden and in some causes burn the skin and tissue inside your mouth.

This is not at all surprising since SLS is actually used as an irritating and corrosive agent in medical studies. A number of studies show how damaging SLS is:


  • A study at the Stern College for Women at Yeshiva University in New York in 1997 examined SLS in mouthwash. They found that SLS in mouth rinses caused shedding and peeling (as well as a burning sensation) of the soft tissue inside the mouth.


  • A study appearing in Exogenous Dermatology confirmed SLS to be a very “corrosive irritant” to the skin, while stripping the skin of protective moisture and oils — this irritation even persisted in research subjects for over 3 weeks after exposure to SLS.


  • Another study shows SLS is associated with increased ulcers (canker sores) due to the corrosive effect and irritation of the soft tissue inside the mouth.

 Dangerous ingredients in toothpaste 2: Rat Poison (AKA Fluoride)

Death by Fluoride 

poisoned-rat Yes you did read that right

I did say ‘Fluoride’ Fluoride is found in nearly all commercial dental products

It’s an ‘acute toxin’ with a toxic rating higher than that of lead.

According to the “Clinical Toxicology of Commercial products”, Fluoride is given a toxicity rating of 4 (3 being moderately toxic, 4 being very toxic) and is actually classed ‘scientifically’ as a toxic waste!

Don’t believe me?

Pick up a tube of Kids Fluorinated toothpaste in your local grocery store and look at the warning label on the back:

“WARNING: If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek PROFESSIONAL HELP or contact a POISON CONTROL centre immediately.”

Yes that’s right, Fluoride is so toxic, there is enough in a single tube of toothpaste to actually kill a child and not only that, it’s also the active ingredient in rat poison!

…and to top it all off, Fluoride has been shown in numerous studies to reduce I.Q, to cause dental fluorosis (which causes random white and brown patches on and around the teeth) and a whole host of other potential problems

 Dangerous Ingredients in toothpaste 3: Plastic (AKA Polyethylene)

Polyethylene – Yep the same stuff plastic bags are made out of


No this isn’t a joke

In certain big brands of commercial toothpaste there is plastic pumped into it

This is supposedly added to make it ‘look better’ (how they come up with these stupid, crazy idea’s in the first place i’ll never know???)

I can’t really name drop the brand without fear of being sued but if your toothpaste has blue or colored speckles running through it, then I would recommend you check the ingredients for Polyethylene ASAP

These ‘speckles’ are made out of plastic … so you literally have thousands of tiny pieces of ground up plastic inside your toothpastespecksintoothpaste …and yes they are actually legally allowed to do this, insane eh?

OK now here’s the main problem: Obviously plastic isn’t particularly good for you, especially if you accidentally swallow some on a regular basis But the bigger concern is…

…That plastic is an inert substance, it will never dissolve or break down in your mouth so when it makes it’s way into the tiny channels in-between your teeth and gums, it gets ‘stuck’ and stays there for good (unless it’s psychically removed of course)

As we don’t yet know the long term health effects of getting tens (or even hundreds) of tiny pieces of colored plastic trapped under your gum line

… watch this space to find out (but I can almost guarantee it wont be pretty)

Update: I have now found a several online reviews of this toothpaste:

After using C**** P** H***** toothpaste, I noticed a bright blue dot above my front tooth. I booked a dentist appt. asap, and she found tons of plastic blue beads above my tooth, and in the gum line along other teeth.     If you use this toothpaste, you may want to reconsider.

I have been using c**** p** h***** for about 6 months now, recently I noticed a black spot on my gum.     I did not know what it was and went to my dentist, offered to do a biopsy to find out. I’ve read that the toothpaste was causing black spots under the gums because of the plastic beads that are in it.     I am now very afraid of what this toothpaste has done to my gums and mouth.     I need to speak to someone to see what I can do about the situation or perhaps have it corrected, there is now unsightly black spots right between my teeth on my gums.

I’ve only been using it for a month. About a week ago, I noticed that my gums were extremely sore. I didn’t think for a second that the toothpaste could be the problem. As I was going to bed the same night, my jaw started to hurt and my entire mouth was severely sore and sensitive. I woke up the next morning and my mouth killed! Extremely red, my cheeks, jaw, and entire area of my gums were swollen and inflamed. Just for the hell of it, I did some research on C**** toothpaste and there isn’t one good consumers review of this! Many people out there using this toothpaste are experiencing this awful pain and are suffering major damage to the mouth. C*** has an ingredient called polyethylene which is plastic. Plastic that’s used to make garbage bags and other products. It’s only purpose is to make the paste looks pretty! It’s those small blue specks if you look closely. What those little specks do is they get stuck inside the sulcus of your gums, kind of like the cuticle of your fingernails. and as those specks sit there it does a lot of damage to your teeth and starts to break down the gum wall!!

 Dangerous Ingredients In Toothpaste 4: Antibacterial Toothpaste (AKA Triclosan)

I’ll have a tube of the cancer toothpaste please!


Triclosan is found in most antibacterial toothpastes on the market

Animal studies have shown that triclosan alters hormone regulation so it could literally change the way your body controls it’s release of hormones

This is quite a big deal as this could lead to cancer, development issues and even reproductive problems

However, Animal studies don’t always always carry the same effects over into humans

BUT do you want to be a guinea pig for the FDA and find out the hard way?

… because I certainly don’t!

Other studies done on triclosan have also shown it could possibly contribute to making bacteria resistant to current medications. Leading to the potential creation of ‘superbugs’ that cant be cured by existing antibiotics



OK so what can YOU can do to avoid these harmful chemicals?


Simple, stop using toothpaste and mouthwash!

… well OK, maybe it’s not quite as simple as that, after all you still have to clean your teeth every day

BUT if you stop using 99% of ‘commercial’ dental products and swap them for good natural alternatives, you can stop these hideous ingredients from entering your body for good

You can find several excellent ‘all natural’ products on the market that are just as good (if not far better in every way) without ANY of the nasty ingredients listed above, here are 2 of the very best:

  • If you have gum problems, gum disease or unhealthy teeth/gums, use a strong natural antibacterial dental solution like Dental Pro 7
