WARNING: Squeezing Toothpaste From The Middle Of The Tube Causes Dangerous Chemical Side Effects.
There are many options we have when it comes to taking care of our teeth these days.
Toothpaste companies entice us with promises of whiter teeth, tarter control, cavity protection and more.
But what is REALLY lurking in your toothpaste?
Well, let’s first look at this: What type are you when it comes to your toothpaste tube? Do you squeeze from the bottom or do you squeeze from the middle?
Did you know which one of these is a major risk to your health?
A new study says squeezing your toothpaste tube from the middle can cause the chemicals in the tube to separate, leaving you at risk for ammonia poisoning.
Carbamide peroxide is found in toothpaste, gels and rinses. The byproduct of carbamide peroxide is urea, which turns into ammonia.
This is NOT to be confused with hydrogen peroxide, which is safe to use in moderation.
Once the toothpaste is separated at the bottom of the tube, it begins a process of disjunction, where the ammonia becomes toxic.
When you finally get to the toothpaste that has been sitting at the bottom of your toothpaste tube, you are now using toothpaste which contains 92% ammonia according to the study.
The floor of your mouth, the area below your tongue, is very vascular and can act as a quick route of absorption into the bloodstream.
The signs of ammonia poisoning include:
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Mouth pain
- Lip swelling
Please share this with your friends! Tell them to squeeze from the bottom! You could save a life!!
