Just read a USA Today article about
issues with oral b glide floss and skimmed some of the related studies. The exact floss I use is linked to build up of toxic PFAS chemicals. A type of PFAS chemical (PFOA) is known to be present in higher concentrations in people with UC. I switched to this floss about
6 years ago. UC hit me a bit more then 2 years ago.
I don’t at all think a single cause is behind my UC. But freaky to add my floss to one of the possible contributing factors. In the trash it goes. Will find some hippie natural stuff.
High level article on the floss:https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/01/09/oral-b-glide-floss-toxic-pfas-chemicals-study/2530661002/
