Crest Admits to Putting Deadly Disease Triggering Ingredients in Toothpaste
A dental hygienist in Phoenix noticed something strange in the mouths of her patients — and spoke up about it... “We thought it was a cleaning product or something that people were chewing,” Walraven said.They were little blue dots trapped in the tiny spaces between people’s teeth and gums.“Some weeks I’ll see five or six patients,” Walraven told KNXV.
It took awhile, but they finally figured out what it was — polyethylene. It’s  a plastic used in all kinds of things like garbage containers, grocery bags, bullet proof vests, even knee replacements … and now in toothpaste.
Walvaren said one brand appears to use the plastic microbeads more than others.
“Pretty much everyone was saying that they were using some form of Crest toothpaste,” Walraven said.
“They’ll trap bacteria in the gums which leads to gingivitis, and over time that infection moves from the gum into the bone that holds your teeth, and that becomes periodontal disease, Phillips said. “Periodontal disease is scary.”
Crest said the majority of its toothpaste will be microbead-free in six months.
They’ll be completely gone by March of 2016.
If you want to make sure the product you’re using is microbead-free, take a look at the ingredient list and make sure it doesn’t include polyethylene.
