Teflon is being put in to everything any more why not toothpaste. Would help keep smokers and coffee drinkers teeth whiter.

       Is it human-friendly?

       Jutta, I think I have to disagree with your [mfd]magic. Potential health risks aside, (and also disregarding the fact that I am not a chemist) They make toilet bowl cleaners that contain teflon that supposedly keeps the porcelain surface non-stick, so why not toothpaste?   

       I don't know anything about the chemistry that would enable this, but you get a bun from me.

       I've never checked in to it, but I've sort of assumed that the Teflon infused bathroom products are a gimmick.   

       Given the slipperiness(?) of the stuff and the effort required to make Teflon stick to cooking utensils, I don't see how the stuff could possibly adhere to a porcelain surface and have nothing stick to it.   

       Wasn't there a teflon coated teeth idea here once?

       Clorox's web site doesn't give much insite into how it works, but does say it's made of a different material than Teflon cookware.

       [World]: first time I've ever encountered the phrase "Incidental bowl water ingestion".

       Yeah, looks like the PR people and the lawyers worked together on that FAQ. I'll let my dog know that Clorox doesn't recommend that she drinks from the bowl.

       How did this get four buns?

       Toohtpaste is mildy abrasive, to clean the teeth. Teflon is slicker 'n pigsnot in a snowstorm. Seems like these competing functions are going to conflict with each other to some ill effect.

       I agree with oxen.   

       Surely it should be the cigarettes and the coffee that are laced with teflon, in order to prevent toothly stickage?
