Teeth Too

We probably don’t talk about it enough here on DiseaseProof, but your teeth are pretty important too. HealthDay News passes on some tips to keep your teeth in tip-top shape. Check it out:
The American Dental Association offers these guidelines for proper hygiene:
  • At least twice a day (and after meals when you can), brush with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Use an antimicrobial mouthwash.
  • Floss at least once each day. If possible, floss after every meal to remove food particles from between teeth.
  • Get a new toothbrush at least once every three months, or whenever the brush's bristles become frayed and worn.
  • Limit sugary meals, drinks and snacks.
  • Visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
Admit it, there is no greater shame than being told you have a cavity—grrr!

??? I thought research had shown that fluoride had no benefit after childhood? I also thought there was a distinction between naturally occurring fluoride & what's put in toothpaste, which is a byproduct of aluminum manufacturing. Is this another urban myth?

I have my doubts about the floride and anti- microbal part.

Last year I was researching Fluoride and it's possible harm. I do believe in going to the professionals to find out - I was raised to question and be curious. I went to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - there I printed off their sheet because it was unbelievable: the fluoride that is in our water actually comes from phosphate fertilizer manufacturing plants.
I was in geology so I know phosphate: it is a sedimentary rock BUT it also carries with it: uranium, radium, cadmium, aluminum, lead.
This is processed in the plant, along with it's own chemicals...it goes up into the scrubbers in the stacks and then is packaged for our fluoride.
The harm fluoride can cause: brittle bones, Thyroid damage...and so much more because these chemicals build up in the body.
Please, do the research. All of this is true and said by chemists, PhD's...and admitted by the CDC.
America needs your help - this fluoride is not a pharmaceutical...it is made of chemicals that truly harm us.
Thank you so very much.
