Colgate Total

Anyone using Colgate Total should be aware of the chemicals in it. Even if you are not worried about the fluoride which is a known poison there are other poisons in the toothpaste. Important to understand the chemicals we are exposed to. You can't keep putting chemicals in your body and expect to be healthy. I currently use baking soda as a toothpaste. My water is reverse osmosis.

An exercise component of the popular Nintendo Wii video game may help multiple sclerosis patients improve their balance by rewiring their brains, a new study suggests.

No medications exist to preserve balance in MS patients, and some drugs make balance worse, said study lead author Dr. Luca Prosperini, a neurologist at Sapienza University in Rome, Italy.

I could opt to ignore the ...
