Yesterday, I was looking for news, this story came up. I am some what puzzled by what I thought minor issue.
As the story goes this guy called sean dix invented sterilized floss in 1993 and later in 1995 he realized that he is the only guy who is proposing sterilized floss and J&J who dominates the floss market tried to negotiate with him for using his patent , but drops the ball saying they have different priorities . so this guy wants to go for mass production just before major events in his aim, CNN comes into picture and interviews him, skews the information and literally debunks him and literally bankrupts him. You can see some sean dix's youtube video's defending himself from the MSM media attacks, latest seems to be from new york post.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7hZzYC7_tUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GIBS-67MmU
I was thinking what are they adding to the floss?. My original thought is it is some cotton thread ( some plastic thread that leaks nylon etc. ) and bee wax or some thing like that. Due to the extent MSM went against this guy, I wondered floss may have flouride or mercury etc. Simple google search tells a different content but similar story.
Does dental floss contain gluten?
I would have never even thought about dental floss containing gluten but Alyssa was flossing her teeth and made the comment she loved to floss her teeth because it had a fruity taste.The gluten alarm went off in my head. Everything else seems to contain gluten so I don't know why I would think floss wouldn't . Does anyone know??
It's bad when your child wants to floss their teeth just to suck the sweet flavor out of the floss. Thanks celiac, thanks diabetes
I just checked my Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guide from Cecelia's Marketplace. Glide is listed as safe. Safeway Select Mint and a couple from Tom's of Maine are also on the safe list. Check with the manufacturer of her favorite brand and see.
We went to the dentist the other day, and my dd came home complaining of a stomach ache. I had mentioned her recent dx to the hygienist, but I didn't even think to question the ingredients of the paste they use to brush and the fluoride treatment.
SHe loves the Oral B princess toothpaste also, but that brand is not on the safe list anywhere. Guess I need to make a phone call.
ARGGG!!!! GLUTEN IS EVERYWHERE!!!
Thanks. You don't think about the little things that could have gluten in them. We were using Colgate and when I called them they said they didn't add gluten to their products but, would not guarantee it wasn't in there. We switched to be safe.
It looks we can't trust any thing we put in mouth or on skin these days
