Alert! Alert!

That innocent tube in your bathroom full of the white stuff is full of health endangering chemicals which the FDA chooses to regulate less as it is a personal care product.

A quick reading of the ingredients in one leading brand of toothpaste reveals:

* Triclosan: A preservative and cosmetic biocide that has been linked to endocrine disruption, organ system toxicity, and bioaccumulation

* Sodium lauryl sulfate: A cleansing agent linked to cancer and developmental and reproductive toxicity

* Tetrasodium pyrophosphate: An oral care agent that animal studies have found impact your brain and nervous system at low doses

* Hydrated silica: An anticaking agent that bioaccumulates in people and wildlife

* FD&C Blue 1: An artificial coloring linked to cancer
