Hi Dr. Ellie,
We’re all enjoying the Zellies mints and I’m using the Closys II rinse twice a day.
I’ve read that there’s a link between chlorinated drinking water and chlorinated shower water and cancer. Do you know if this is the same chlorine that’s in Closyss II?
I agree about avoiding Chlorinated water.
Do you know that things like the antibacterial “triclosan” in Colgate Total (R) can react with the chlorine in tap water to form chloroform which may cause mouth ulcers and even may be carcinogenic?
On the other hand, Closys is a “chlorine dioxide system” .
The “Chlorine” in Closys (Cl2O) has as much to do with “Chlorine” as “Hydrogen” has to do with “Hydrogen Dioxide” …….you know Hydrogen Dioxide best as H2O ( = water!)
I think you will agree there is a big difference between hydrogen and water!
Hope this helps to make you feel better about this!
