I'm just disputing a statement that "xylitol isn't toxic to humans". I don't agree with this statement and do question its safety.
Not surprised you aren't finding information questioning it. Vast majority of the information is pushing it. It's so uber trendy right now. Reminds me of how s. boulardii is overly promoted nowadays too, and I have learned if you weed through the propaganda on the internet, I did learn it isn't nearly as safe as they say (and have posted about
this numerous times previously).
Here is another link that shows some points about
why it is concerning. My point is - some people do actually question its safety.
I guess I could list more, but really, what's the point? I really have no desire to debate this with you all. If you want to use it and are comfortable with doing so, then so be it. I, on the other hand, am not. Am just offering an alternative viewpoint for others.
I'm okay with being in the minority. I'm old enough to have questioned other things and have been in the minority - only to have the pendulum change in time. Fluoride, mercury light bulbs, etc - I didn't jump on these bandwagons (very minority opinion on those back in the day), and now increasingly more people avoid these over time (I'm not as much in the minority like previously).
Not enough data out there for me to see that xylitol is safe for my family to use, so I avoid it where I can. Having said that, I did try one toothpaste with xylitol once, but it was sourced from birch (not corn) and thus was not gmo.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
