What's wrong with commercial toothpaste?
When it comes to "regular" toothpaste, there are better and safer alternatives. If you read the tube or box your toothpaste comes in, you will notice a warning stating that if you swallow the toothpaste, you should call poison control. Why? Because their toothpaste contains several potentially dangerous chemicals, one of these is called fluoride. Although fluoride has been shown to potentially achieve results in re-strengthening enamel, it is also a toxic substance linked to many health problems. The reason why we do not recommend fluoride toothpaste is because the majority of the time, it is in your water, your toothpaste, and applied at the dentist. Too much is being applied and therefore it is doing more harm than good. (Using too much fluoride can make the teeth too brittle and therefore more susceptible to cavities and dental fluorosis. Considering that 1 in 3 children in the US now have dental fluorosis, we are clearly using too much fluoride.) With there being more effective and safer alternatives, using fluoride is not a healthy choice.
Another reason is that toothpastes contain ingredients like polyethylene glycols, triclosan, strontium, benzene, and tin, which are all potentially harmful to human health. Even "natural" toothpaste contains high levels of glycerin. When there is high levels of glycerin left on our teeth, it takes quite a long time before it wears off and our enamel can properly strengthen again. This leaves teeth susceptible to cavities. Boline's toothpaste is all natural and good for you!

This notice is required by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for herbalists and people like me but not big pharma, who is in bed with the FDA. After umpteen million product recalls, birth defects and deaths, big pharma still doesn't have to label like this- even though the ingredients in this product has been used safely for much longer than any pharmaceutical preparation has. Just sayin'.
