Toxic Toothpaste and 4 Healthy Toothpastes that Aren’t Poison!

Team - 8:02 AM

If you are using any commercial toothpaste, you’re probably brushing your teeth with toxic waste – poisoning yourself, poisoning the environment, and telling that corporation from whom you bought the paste that you support them putting poisons in their toothpaste and selling it to you as if it’s safe to use.

In a world where corporations control the government, the power to control the corporations is in the hands of the people. Corporations we buy from thrive and expand, and corporations we don’t buy from dry up and disappear. _

Changing the world is completely up to us and is also very simple. The ball is in your court.

Let’s take a look at one of the most popular toothpastes on the market. One of my roommates uses it, and I’m sure many other people do as well. This post goes out to them, and to anybody else who never questioned whether their toothpaste was safe to use.

4 Toothpastes that Aren’t Poison!

Now that we’ve seen what doesn’t work, let’s take a look at what we can use instead to create a healthier smile and a world of healthier people.

Beware, not all toothpastes you find in ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ sections in the grocery store are healthy. Many companies provide fluoride-free toothpaste, which is great, but then if you read the rest of the ingredients you’ll find all sorts of other poisons that you don’t want to be using. We must be vigilant and research every ingredient within.

I was originally only going to showcase one healthy toothpaste, but thanks to my lovely friends on facebook I now have four great products for you. You can thank them!
