Glad to hear that in all likely hood it's not the lack of fluoride causing the tooth transparency. I've spent the last couple of days trying to find some non fluoride toothpaste, as I want to test out a theory that it will help with lucid dreaming. But no luck so far. Anyone know what kind of store I might find fluoride toothpaste in?
What It Is: A form of the basic element fluorine
Found In: Toothpaste, tap water
Health Hazards: Neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed; the American Dental Association advises that children under 2 not use fluoride toothpaste
What You Should Know: Government studies support current fluoride levels in tap water, but studies on long-term exposure and cancers are ongoing
In 2006, the American Association of Poison Control Centers reported 22,168 exposures involving toothpaste with fluoride. Only 313 cases were actually treated in the emergency department. Moderate effects were seen in 45 cases. No cases of major adverse effects or death were reported.
