I eventually found just one toothpaste made here in Australia - Cedel. So I bought it, and unless I can find the Macro brand again (which is also made here) that's all I will ever buy. I'm not being racist; I just do not want to put stuff into my mouth that was made in India, Thailand or Africa. There are many things in our house that have their origins in those countries, and I have no objection to them. But as far as food and personal health products go, I believe they should be made locally.
Choice had a frightening article in this month's issue, about the toxic chemicals founds in cloths and furnishing that are made overseas and imported into Australia. Anyone reading this blog who has unexplained health issues, should beg borrow or buy that issue of Choice magazine and read it. You may be shocked.
