Toothpaste

Though toothpaste as we know it today is only about a century old, dental hygiene has long concerned human beings. The ancient Greeks and Romans cleaned their teeth with abrasive mixtures using crushed bones and oyster shells, a far cry from the hydrogen peroxide-and-baking soda formulas of the 19th century. In 1892, American dentist Washington Sheffield became the first to sell toothpaste in a tube—today the standard in toothpaste packaging. What had inspired him to package it like that? More...

Contrary to the lie promoted by the established order, Fluoride - the toxic byproduct of chemical processing, does nothing whatsoever to hinder, impede, or inhibit tooth decay.
It does facilitate the accumulation of aluminum particulates in the human body.

The fact that this fact is overlooked by society in general, and that those who continue to sound the alarm about fluoride being added to the public water supply are marginalized as "conspiracy theorists" adds weight to the mind control narrative.

Government - guvernos: to control, mentos: mind = government = mind control.

Aluminum particulates have been shown to induce docility and to lower fertility.

The Hitler Regime introduced fluoride into the German people's water in the 30's.


"Now" is the eternal present.

A toothpaste for the emerging consumer market was but one of Sheffield’s contributions to the field of oral hygiene. In the late 19th century, numerous companies flooded the toothpaste market with products available in a variety of different jars—into which all members of a family might dip their brushes. During this time, Washington Sheffield’s son, Dr. Lucius Tracy Sheffield was in Paris, France, where he noticed artists using collapsible metal tubes for paints and inks. Lucius communicated his observations to his father and shortly after, in 1892, Washington Sheffield unveiled America’s first toothpaste tube.

I agree Absurdicuss. Except I don't know the science behind it, but any substance added to our water or toothpaste is ridiculous. Except maybe for the necessary chlorine. I think proponents of fluoride are misguided. I did not know opponents were considered to believe in a conspiracy theory. I just disagree with adding something to water when we have no choice except to filter it. Although water is already full of bad chemicals now. At least with toothpaste people have choices.

We drink and shower in filtered water and use baking soda for toothpaste. Dentist said toothpaste is not even necessary if you brush and floss well. and to always rinse with salt water at the end.

As for the etymology of government -
