Why the warning on toothpaste?

Posted: Sunday, September 23, 2007

For all the people advocating that fluoride in our water system is safe, I would like to ask the question, "Why, with fluoride being the only active ingredient in toothpaste, does my toothpaste container have a warning to keep it out of reach of children under 6 years of age - and if more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed to get medical help or contact a poison control center right away?"
