How do you take your toothpaste?
Sour cream and Chives? Bad breath before you need it

Thats the good stuff!
all flouride toothpastes contain rat poison. just a little travel tube size contains enough rat poison to kill a 6 year old child. That is why it is important to rinse.
I've always hated the foaminess of toothpaste, so I rarely use it. I use baking soda instead. I use fluoridated mouthwash with a Waterpik for cavity prevention.
Standingfirminchrist, why do you think toothpaste contains rat poison? What kind of rat poison - strichnine or the anticoagulant? Kid do eat that stuff (bleah) even though they shouldn't but I've never heard of any dying from it.
Tom's of Maine here as well!
I just buy the cheapest
Daisy, next time you are in the store, look at the toothpaste boxes. They all contain a warning to call the NPC in case of accidental overdose.
Call and ask the NPC what kind of poison it is. I am not sure. I have read many articles that have said it is the flouride that is a form of rat poison.
I use the toothpaste that makes me yell BAM!
Might as well have garlic.
Cheddar? Garlic? Sour Cream and Chives? Yukkk!
I like the Lemon Ice flavor by Crest. When I lived in Japan, they had some crazy flavors such as seaweed. Weird.
I'm not aware that fluoride is used in rat poison (it may) but that doesn't mean fluoride has potentially beneficial effects too.
Most rat poison contain warfarin, brodificoum, diphacinone or bromadoline. (My dog ate some last summer and was rushed to the vet, so I know what they contain)...he's okay.
Coumadin is a common anticoagulant still used in treating heart disease (it is also known as warfarin).
Digitalis (Digoxin) is another dangerous poison that is used in medicine.
It has been used for millennia to strengthen the heart beat.
I like the strong minty taste of the Arm and Hammer baking soda toothpaste.
The caution that has been aired many times is that you should be very careful about buying "dollar-store" toothpaste. Many sources of dollar store toothpaste are foreign...where water is not flouridated. Flouride levels in that toothpaste are up to ten times the levels of US brands. If you buy the dollar store stuff, look on the tube/box to see the country of origin and an ADA or CDA (Canadian) endorsement.
standingfirminChrist & rbell,
Do you think if I squeeze a tube of toothpaste down a rat hole the rats will all die? Bought at the Dollar Store, it would be cheaper than real rat poison constaining coumarin and probably safer for the dog as well.
Maybe I should write in the tip to Organic Gardening...but maybe toothpaste isn't really organic.
If it has flouride, it isn't organic.
Can you believe I couldn't vote. It said paste or gel. Mine has both.
Baking soda works great too!
Dunno if they'd die, but they'd have minty-fresh breath.
Unless you chose sour cream & onion flavor...
Colgate is buying Tom's. Looks like Tom is getting $100-million in cold hard Colgate cash!
I hope that doesn't mean I won't be able to buy my non-flouride mint!!
