Alcohol-based mouthwash and oral cancer -- too much confusion
If you are like me, you probably always and almost faithfully, include a bottle of mouthwash on your grocery list especially after watching and/or listening to the numerous commercials in the media that claim you will not only get long-lasting fresh breath but also freedom from plaque- and gingivitis-causing germs. However, many proprietary mouthwashes including my favorite brand contain alcohol (ethanol). Numerous research reports and newspaper articles suggest a possible link between their long-term use and oral cancer.
