Dental Floss and Toxins

Toxins are a part of our world, it’s unavoidable.  But toxins that we voluntarily put in our body are avoidable.  This is an article posted in USA Today on January 10, 2019 which cautions against using floss that is treated with PFAS, a potentially toxic chemical used as a gliding agent.  I would suggest reading this article and looking at the links associated with it to make an informed decision regarding what you put in your mouth.
