i need more arrested development!


… and a shower.


so i’ve had these sores in my mouth that just won’t go away.  (nasty, i know.)
walking back from class today i was complaining once again about them (they are painful)…
and terri suggested that it was most likely my toothpaste that was causing the problem.
?!!!?!  what?!
so i decided to research this theory…


…………………………………………………………………………………………………….


the public ends up creating their own “canker sore” problem, by using commercial toothpastes, which contain an ingredient that has been proven to be linked to canker sores. It’s called Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), and is placed into toothpaste (and some mouthwashes) in order to create foaming.
(Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is also the main ingredient in your shampoo – go check it out.)

The harshness of this chemical has been proven to create microscopic damage to the oral tissue which lines the inside of your mouth, which then leads to Canker Sores.


It’s SOAP. …soap, inside your mouth. For many years the major pharmaceutical companies have used Soap (chemically known as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) in order to create a foaming agent when one brushes their teeth. The reason? The foam does not provide any benefits to the toothpaste, but does “fool” the user (YOU) into thinking that a foaming action is related to a “cleansing” action.


In your toothpaste it creates the foam you get when brushing.
Recent studies have shown a link between the use of toothpastes containing SLS and the occurrence of RAS (canker sores).

stupid toothpaste…


p.s. – i love panera’s baked potato soup.  i must get their recipe.
