Re: Brushing Your Teeth

@Albert, if that's meant to be funny, awesome. If not, best of luck with that.

Yo, Jason, I feel like you are taking my comment to mean I'm this ultra extreme person AND that I'm judging you for not being the same exact way. You're totally wrong if that's the case. I just do the best I can, when I can. And it happens to be easy for me to get ahold of toothpaste with less chemicals, so I'll consider it. Then it will balance out with other stuff that isn't so perfect all the time. I don't think it makes me a whackjob.

Re: Brushing Your Teeth

If you hate your life, you can brush your teeth with baking soda and that works just fine - you know, if you're trying to avoid chemicals and such. I just don't know how much you're going to like the taste.

However - don't skip brushing your teeth. There's more at stake (see that earlier comment about heart disease) than just whether or not your teeth will fall out.

Also, to that comment about animals not brushing their teeth - they also die when their teeth fall out. I don't want my teeth to fall out, but if they do, I don't really want that to signal the end of my time here either.

Yes. This. On all counts.

And then?

Animals also poop in public, drink from the toilet and hump guest's legs.

Only one of those is acceptable for humans.

I'll let you pick which one.

Re: Brushing Your Teeth

What a thread...

For what it's worth, I switched to Tom's natural toothpaste a couple years ago, and when I went in for my 6 month check-up/cleaning, the hygenist asked what I was doing differently, because my teeth had a lot more plaque and staining than she'd ever seen on me before. Needless to say, I switched back to my beloved Colgate. No, I don't worry about the chemicals.

Re: Brushing Your Teeth

The CrossFit forums have me considering moving with my family to a wild aborigen tribe. I bet their cleaning products and their foods are natural enough for us to live happy and healthy.

Re: Brushing Your Teeth

[quote=Albert Chang;824183]
There's a lot of things in nature that cleans your teeth. One example is cocoa beans or nuts. I'm not sure if they can be eaten raw. This would also mean that really dark chocolate (99%) is acceptable. If you eat cocoa nibs every night before you go to sleep, your teeth will be fine. In the morning, your salivary glands will produce more saliva and protect your teeth.


Classic!

Re: Brushing Your Teeth

Dr. Bronner's FTW. Worked miracles on my AT hike.

If Albert chooses to live that way, who cares? Do whatever makes you happy, and **** what anyone else thinks.
