I think that '' grasshopper" is being sarcastic! Fluoride is a poison for one and they tell you the name of all the other things in toothpaste bad for humans. I personally have been using plain old baking soda to brush my teeth for a few years now and peroxide as mouthwash. We also used baking soda as children because Mom was raising 5 children and baking soda is cheap but effective cleanser. The dental hygienist told me(that's her job) it may harm my gums but turned right around and use ''baking soda powder'' to polish my teeth which she stated they use on children. This was done because I old her I wanted no fluoride of any kind put in my mouth!
