In recent years, natural toothpaste options have been popping up more frequently. But why switch to a fluoride free toothpaste? While fluoride protects your teeth from decay, fluoride also can be harmful to your health, and especially your children's health. Accidentally swallowing toothpaste with fluoride in high amounts is unsafe and could result in weakened bones or muscles. So pick up a toothpaste like Green Beaver that contains natural antibacterial agents such as Xylitol, and don't sweat it if you accidentally swallow your toothpaste!
