More and more people are looking to learn about the ingredients contained in the products they consume as well as their potential health risks. One of these ingredients is fluoride, which is present in most of the oral hygiene products we buy.
It’s not news that fluoride is good at preventing cavities. However, the fluoride levels considered safe for intake have been a cause for concern due to the abundant exposure we have to this mineral.
