    There's a risk vs. benefit factor going on here.

    The risk of contracting cancer from mouthwash is so small that the benefit from it's use outways the risk.

    The systemic complications associated with poor oral hygiene are enormous.

    I believe the point of the link was excessive use.

    I've come to the conclusion that almost everything is ok in moderation, breathing and walking around on this earth is indeed a dangerous undertaking, and it's wise to do the best we can without obsessing and then leave our frail human bodies in God's hands.

    The mouth is the filthiest orifice in the human body..........No more kissing!

    I wonder if mouthwash is bad for artificial teeth too. I soak mine in mouth wash, but I do rinse them in clean water also.

    I may not live to old age!

    Cheers,

    Jim
