    Default Mouthwash can give you Cancer

    The ethanol in mouthwash is thought to allow cancer-causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth.

    Michael McCullough, associate professor of oral medicine at the University of Melbourne, Australia, who led the study, said: "We see people with oral cancer who have no other risk factors than the use of (mouthwash containing alcohol], so what we've done is review all the evidence.

    "Since this article, further evidence has come out, too. We believe there should be warnings. If it was a facial cream that had the effect of reducing acne but had a four to fivefold increased risk of skin cancer, no-one would be recommending it."

    Hum, I kinda can`t get the purpose of washing your mouth with alcohol. After reading this, I`ll surely use only toothpaste as always.

    Drinking water gives you cancer aswell.
    Who cares! We're all going to die on cancer if we must believe all this crap.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Saw it, not that bothered, and don't really believe it will affect your chances that much anyway.

    A new "study" comes out everyday saying this or that can give you cancer. There'll be a "study" out soon saying that sleeping will give you cancer and I bet that most people will believe it as everybody is so bloody gullible.

    Well, apparently sleeping with a bra on can give you breast cancer...

    I use mouthwash, don't really care about it anyway. Scientists come up with new things all the time that "will" give you cancer.

    You're telling me this because? I don't wear a bra lol

    But that might be the reason why my ex never wore one when she slept, I'm not complaining though

    Ethanol? They don't say wine gives you oral cancer do they? What a load of rubbish. I think t he carcinigens in the air are more risk and you can't do much about that.

    Like MB said everything gives you cancer these days, so if you stopped doing/eating the things that give you cancer, then you will die anyway.
