Why all the hassel for a toothpaste? Is it really worth it? 

Fluoride can harm your brain and body while it is easily found in daily life (Source 1; Source 2). For instance, many commercial products contain fluoride marketed as cleansing & strengthening ingredient. Toothpaste is one example.

According to Paul Vankevich, assistant professor of general dentistry at Tufts School of Dental Medicine, the fluoride contained toothpaste is more protective of teeth against acid. However not everybody is in need of fluoride as some people’s teeth are naturally resistant against acid. Nonetheless, fluoride is capable of damaging the brain according to over 300 researches. After embracing myself in all the researches to find out the truth, I decided to adapt an easier way of life: excluding the fluoride-contained toothpaste once for all for my daily products. And this is the reason of the article. 

“The easier way of life is…. Coconut oil.”
