Well.... Yeah... (personal story)

In Response To: Could flossing be bad for you? Elevated Perfluoroalkyl (PFA) levels in people who use certain types of dental floss (MrFusion)

When I was quite young, my grandmother, who had incidentally dipped snuff since she was 12, lived with us. Mom hated her snuff habit. The Doctor had warned her. Mom said that stuff is bad for your heart.

Granny and me were besties, though, and I would walk up to the store for her as she would slip me 15 cents to buy her a small metal can of Garetts snuff when she wanted it. Yep 15 cents.. it was awhile ago (dont ask)...

Another daily habit she had, was cleaning her teeth with a fresh wild cherry tree stem,about an eighth inch diameter and 4 inches long. She would chew one end to fibers, and then she brushed her teeth with it. She sent me to the woods daily.

I tried to gather several at once one time, No She said..It has to be fresh. no more than an hour old.

Well, who was I to argue? At 83, she still had all her teeth and I at 12, had already had several fillings...

Eventually, I guess the snuff habit finally got her.. She passed away at 94... But, you know what? She still had all her teeth..

: Notice how the statement from Oral-B is worded (last paragraph
: below), leaving open the possibility of PFA-type materials
: not mentioned in the study...

: Oral-B Glide floss tied to potentially toxic PFAS chemicals,
: study suggests
: Ryan W. Miller, USA TODAY Published 8:25 p.m. ET Jan. 9, 2019
: | Updated 7:15 p.m. ET Jan. 10, 2019

: Using Oral-B Glide dental floss might be associated with
: higher levels of toxic PFAS chemicals in your body,
: according to a new peer-reviewed study of consumer
: behaviors potentially linked to the substances.

: PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are potentially
: harmful chemicals often used for their water and grease
: resistance.

: The study, which aimed to explain how these chemicals enter
: the human body, was published Tuesday in the Journal of
: Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology and comes
: from the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Massachusetts,
: and Public Health Institute in Berkeley, California.

: Researchers found higher levels of PFHxS
: (perfluorohexanesulfonic acid), a PFAS, in women who
: flossed with Oral-B Glide compared to those who didn't.

: "This is the first study to show that using dental floss
: containing PFAS is associated with a higher body burden of
: these toxic chemicals," lead author Katie Boronow, a
: scientist at Silent Spring, said in a statement.

: In a statement to USA TODAY on Thursday, Oral-B said it didn't
: find any of the substances in the study in its floss.
: "The safety of the people who use our products is our
: top priority. Our dental floss undergoes thorough safety
: testing and we stand behind the safety of all our
: products," the company said.
