Does Colgate give you white teeth plus “Cancer”?

Brushing-Teeth-toMillions of consumers are perhaps at risk of getting Cancer. This risk is due to the top-selling toothpaste using an antibacterial chemical to fight off gum diseases. The brand is non other than Colgate-Palmolive Co.

A new research investigation is alleging that even though U.S has most stringent regulatory processes – the government still depends on Organizational backed science for FDA approval of a new drug –to prove it is safe and effective.

This buzz is all around the use of the antibacterial chemical Triclosan, which has been linked to cancer cell growth and disrupted development in animals. Researchers are also questioning its use in soap, cutting boards, and toys.

So when it comes to using the dreaded chemical in your oral cavity everyday, it has to make a big issue, Colgate is defending on basis of the rigoruous Food and Drug Administration process which has allowed the tooth past to be sold over the counter.
