There are a lot of chemicals in your toothpaste, but what I want to talk about here is fluoride. Yes your body needs a tiny bit, but I said tiny tiny bit.

Ahh!

It calcifies your pineal glad, which is in the center of your brain, and works with your pituitary gland, which is your master glad for your endocrine system or hormones. When it gets calcified, it impairs brain function and creativity and spiritual sight, along with diabetes and lowering IQ. Check out the articles here, or here on How fluoride damages pineal glad and how to decalcify it.
