A lady asked, “is it was alright for her to share a tube of toothpaste with another person?
A lady asked me, ” Is it alright for her to share a tube of toothpaste that she had been using with a friend or family member? I responded, ” NO!” Then she asked, ” why!” I told her, ” because sharing a tube of toothpaste with another person is a possible source of mouth disease transmission if their saliva or blood contains:
Hepatitis B, C, HIV/AIDS, HPV, gingivitis, periodontal disease and infectious mononucleosis “kissing disease.” Germs and bacteria from a cold sore, a cold, flu virus or sore throat can also be transmitted from person to person.
Besides, have you ever thought of how often you had placed toothbrush that has been in your mouth right up against the opening of the tube of toothpaste? Well, if you were to share your tube of toothpaste with another person you will be transmitting germs and bacteria to them.
So, for the parents with children to keep down the cost in your household, when you are out purchasing toothpaste buy the small tubes of toothpaste for them to use.
