Look, Mommy, the Toothpaste has a Warning Label!

An excerpt from the American Dental Association website:

“The American Dental Association’s (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs believes that one part of the warning now required on fluoride toothpastes by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could unnecessarily frighten parents and children, and that the label greatly overstates any demonstrated or potential danger posed by fluoride toothpastes.

The label language, “If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately” is now required on all fluoride toothpastes. But the ADA, in a letter sent to the FDA last year, pointed out that a child could not absorb enough fluoride from toothpaste to cause a serious problem and that the excellent safety record on fluoride toothpaste argues against any unnecessary regulation.”

They Wouldn’t Want to Frighten Us, But…

The part about this statement which troubles me is when they say, “could unnecessarily frighten parents and children, and that the label greatly overstates any demonstrated or potential danger posed by fluoride toothpastes.” A single tube of toothpaste could actually poison and kill two children. They’d be better off drinking Mr. Clean (which I’m sure would kill you if you drank enough of it.”
