        I too am “stunned” that fluoride is not mentioned in this top 10 list. Wow! Fluoride is no doubt far more toxic, plus it is in a higher concentration. Health Canada warns parents to NOT give any child under 3 toothpaste, and under 6 should only use a *RICE* size grain to brush with. I avoid fluoride like the plague, ever since it killed my thyroid and on the advice of my doctor. Too little too late, but at least I can warn others.

          I agree with you 100%. It seems like fluoride is one of the most dangerous ingredients, and then the article mentions stuff that should not be in a list of dangerous ingredients list at all. Go figure.

    They forgot Sodium Fluoride, It's printed on the Front of most toothpaste tubes as well as on the back with the other ingredients..

    It's Extremely Toxic and provides ZERO health benefits.

    Glycerine Glycol isn't in antifreeze, nor is it toxic.

    You're thinking of Ethylene Glycol. Which isn't in toothpaste.

    What? I thought fluoride or sodium bicarbonate would make it to this list. Isn't that what cleans your teeth?

    Titanium dioxide is also used in white food dyes. It's quite common. It's even more common in foods than it is in paint. There are no medically recorded adverse effects.

      The IARC has classified titanium dioxide as a Group 2B carcinogen.

    “Top 10 Dangerous Toothpaste Ingredients” – three of them on your list you say yourself wont do anything bad if ingested!

    I’ve never seen sodium fluoride, usually stannous (tin fluoride). Yes it’s poisonous. By far the most dangerous ingredient. A tube of toothpaste could kill a young child. Contrary to claims their is no health benefit, the fluorine has been scientifically proven repeatedly to reduce the incidence of cavities. Fluorine is also commonly added to municipal water for this reason.
    Conspiracy theorists have long had bizarre and somewhat hilarious ideas about fluoridated water and toothpaste. As usual they do not have science on their sides and simply present illogical plots and/or incorrect science in support of their ideas.

      You best check your History concerning sodium fluoride… Hitler used it in the drinking water
      giving it to those in his concentration camps… to Poison them.

    The flouride debate will continue. There is no conceivable reason to fluoridate water as fluoride can be made readily available in other forms and products and people can choose whether they want fluoride or not. As to the other ingredients, most of them are not really necessary. And, yes, they ARE deadly. The fact that this situation continues says something about this country, but I can’t figure out what.

    OMFG, menthol and chalk in my toothpaste????

    What a stupid article. These things are not harmful in these amounts. Some are not harmful at all and only beneficial.

    10. Formaldehyde: If a large amount of formaldehyde is accidentally ingested, the result could be fatal. Severe formaldehyde ingestion results in jaundice, kidney damage, liver damage, and death.
    9. Detergent:
    if you accidentally ingest a large amount of this stuff – swallowing detergent can cause digestive tract burning.
    8. Seaweed: The good news is that seaweed isn’t toxic. In fact, seaweed has a number of nutritional benefits, though hitting the sushi bar is a better way of gaining those benefits.
    7. Peppermint Oil: peppermint oil can cause a slow pulse, heartburn, and muscle tremors if it is consumed
    6. Paraffin: If you happen to swallow this ingredient, you may end up with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and severe constipation.
    5. Glycerine Glycol: Even though glycerin is not toxic, this additive may cause nausea if swallowed
    4. Chalk: Chalk dust may cause lung problems if inhaled, and swallowing a bit (piece) of chalk could cause bleeding.
    3. Titanium Dioxide: Ingesting titanium dioxide won’t hurt you, but it isn’t recommended either.
    2. Saccharin: Saccharin has been a hot topic of debate every since Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House. The USDA tried to ban the substance in 1972, though it is considered “safe” to ingest today.
    1. Menthol: Go ahead and ingest menthol if you like, but sipping some tea containing menthol is a far better idea than chewing on your tube of toothpaste.

    Looking at all your dissuastions , I’m sorry but thos “negatives” don’t outweight the positives, and the counter argement to every point can pretty much be summed up as:

    Good thing there’s only a little bit of each in TP and you spit most of that out.

    I looked at the top ten human inventions and found them most interesting. And surely one can argue with the relative ranking as to which is. the most important. The number one human invention that was listed was the communicating tool of writing and the illustration showed the cuneiform writing as an early example. However, even before that invention was an earlier one which to this day is not recognized as the greatest of all human inventions, namely that of human speech. It is what changed the face of an ape-like creature to what became homo sapiens -humans, like we are today. The invention went from language of a single source to a two language world.
    The first language, that generated from the vocal chords, had a second complete language introduced somewhere in the neighborhood of 50,000 years ago. Its greatness stems from the fact that it was not only an added complete language, but it’s genius stems from the fact that it modified first language according to the time frame in which events occurred.. Things could now be expressed as happening in the past (past tense), or in the future (future tense) as well as presently occurring (present tense.) Thus you have the beginnings of history, of past events and of planning for future events, something that could not be accomplished with the single language than still exists for all the other animals of the world. These emanations from the vocal chords, humans have chosen to call vowels. The second, and exclusively human language derives from the distinctly different sounds created mostly by the shaping of the facial features like the mouth and the tongue.

    Many toothpastes and other things you may put into your mouth contain water. If you fall into a large body of water you may drown. If given a large intravenous or intra arterial injection of pure water it can kill you. Sodium is found in many foods and other materials used in the mouth. Sodium injected into the body in large amounts can kill you, or ingested in large amounts can kill you. Potassium is found in many foods and in other materials you may put in your mouth. Too much or too little potassium in your blood stream will kill you. So, in this paragraph I have presented a similar scenario to the article above. All the statements are true. If you fear potassium, sodium, water, etc. then the only thing to do is to stop eating or drinking anything ever again. Thank you.

    This list is total garbage. What about toothpastes with unnecessary antibiotics (triclosan)? And you left out the main active ingredient, fluoride? And while I could list the DaNgErOuS effects of fluoride, one should note that these ingredients are not in concentrations likely to cause the symptoms you’ve listed (sure, systemically, if you suck down toothpaste like gogurt). Chalk dust? It’s hard to inhale calcium carbonate when it’s suspended in a paste. And there’s not seaweed in there, it’s carageenan, a common thickener that’s a seaweed extract. Carageenan is not only NOT dangerous, but is a great substitute for gelatin in vegetarian/vegan products, by the by. Not sure where you buy toothpaste with formaldehyde, but it’s likely in places where you wouldn’t drink the water.

    With Billions of people using tooth paste everyday in the the world, the hospitals would have been the filled with the population.

      The hospitals ARE filled… it’s called, cancer, thyroid disease, arthritis & other bone diseases. Pretty much what is ailing the population in North American is related to artificial water fluoridation & all other forms of fluoride. It’s cumulative and it takes decades to manifest itself and you don’t just drop dead with a little daily dose — but you are slowly poisoning yourself. You do know this is a rat poison right? You also know that it comes from the phosphate fertilizer and aluminum industry. It’s a toxic waste by-product from their manufacturing plant. It would cost billions to dispose of it safely, however they found a way to sell it to professionals and government under the guise of healthy teeth and they are now making a profit.
      Their solution to pollution is dilution and you my friend are using your body as a filter.
      In all honesty, you might want to do a little more research on the subject.
