Toxic Chemicals in Your Toothpaste

  • Topic Info:You brush your teeth twice a day, if not more. 

    But could you be putting your health at risk by doing your due diligence when it comes to oral care?

    Current research has been taking a close look at chemicals such as Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), triclosan and fluoride. The results of that research suggest that these chemicals are harmful and can even alter your body's normal hormonal process. Yet they are still allowed in soaps, makeup, deodorants, toothpaste and several other personal care products. 

    So... just how damaging is the exposure to these toxic chemicals? 

    Periodontist and nutritionist, Dr. Sanda Moldovan, DDS, MS, CNS, reveals if natural truly is better and the steps you need to take to protect yourself. Dr. Moldovan also discusses the products and chemicals you need to steer clear of as well as safe alternatives.
