Parabens (sex hormones) in toothpaste and mouthwash.

Today a patient brought in a bottle of mouthwash that contained parabens in them. Parabens are estrogen mimickers and increase the chance of breast and other cancers. They also cause a weakness with muscles of the inner thigh and a major contributor to low back pain. A quick search shows that parabens are also used in toothpaste (including toddler toothpaste).

Ok, so I’d like everyone to check their toothpaste, mouthwash, bar and soft soap, shampoo, shaving cream, dish detergent, lotion, makeup, and bring in anything else that has parabens (such as methylparaben or propylparaben) in them. Let’s start a pile of this crap so that we can easily see how insidious this stuff is.

I really enjoy my work. It is a combination of listening, analyzing, and the skill of performing my craft. I love the expression on my patients faces when I puzzle out a long standing problem of theirs, or when their pain leaves after gently adjusting them. Read more about me
