Go to a natural health food store, and you can find toothpaste without flouride ... several brands available.

I agree, it's a crime that major stores only carry flouride toothpaste ... maybe that's a clue for you: shop at your local natural foods stores.

I dunno. Sometimes I feel like the 'natural' market is becoming a corporate scam too.

At the grocery I noticed all the Tom's had fluoride now. Maybe not the ones at the natural foods. I'll have to check.

I'm sure it will cost double.

Stop using toothpaste.
It does nothing for your teeth that the brush can't do by itself.

Also toothpaste contains GLYCERIN. This stuff sticks to your teeth and forms a coating that prevents you saliva from remineralizing your teeth.

Keeps dentists busy.

A little baking soda or salt is good.

Your choice. Go with the crowd or think for yourself.

Get Tom's of Maine toothpaste for SENSITIVE teeth -- it has neither fluoride nor SLS (the sudsing agent (detergent used in shampoo)

I think it tastes like crap, but Id rather use it than ANY other toothpaste.

Also make sure to use toms all natural deodorant -- it does not have aluminum in it (Alzheimer cause)

you have to check even on Health food types including Tom's . I bought a tube once assuming it didn't have any in it and was surprised to learn that it did. Make sure you check every time.

The truth is you don't need toothpaste. Brushing your teeth works by putting a negative charge on your teeth to repel negatively charged plaque. Toothpaste makes brushing teeth more enjoyable. Just FYI.

I buy Tom's of Maine toothpaste that does NOT have fluoride. You can find it at health food stores, some grocery stores and they even sell it at Walmart as well as drug stores.

Melaleuca sells mint and cinnamon toothpastes without flouride. But you need to be a member or know someone who is. (Still contains artificial sweetener though, sorbitol.)

Best toothpaste in the world is Ayurvedic. You can buy it at any Indian grocery store. It's pure (relative), really tasty, and really effective. Whitens, brightens, etc. No garbage in it, and much cheaper than Tom's of Maine or the other trendy stuff.

If you will read the precautions printed on the tube it says "call the poison control immed. if you swallow the toothpaste" Don't belive me? Go look at your tooth paste. Now would you want that in your kids mouth? Tom's toothpaste is not poison.

Use baking soda. If you don't like the taste, add a (very small, it's mega powerful) drop of organic peppermint oil. Swish with a mixture of 50/50 warm water & peroxide.
