Toothpaste Rumor

Social Media Rumors

With the rise of social media comes the rise of disinformation. People intentionally putting out false statements regarding just about anything.  For example toothpaste! Yes people will just about share or post anything no matter how crazy it is! All it would take is literally 30 seconds of research on Google and it would stop.  Refer to the image in this post and the wording below.

Color Markings On Toothpaste

"Pay attention when buying toothpaste, at the bottom of the toothpaste tube there is a color bar. And do you only know the original meaning of the color bar! Try to choose green and blue, there are four kinds: 

Green: natural; 
Blue : Natural + Medicine; 
Red : Natural + Chemical composition; 
Black : pure chemical.

please share to all...... "

Those colored squares on the crimps of those toothpaste tubes have nothing to do with what is contained in the toothpaste inside. They're called "eye marks" or "color marks," printed marks that can be read by light beam sensors and typically identify where product packaging (in this case toothpaste) is to be cut or folded as connected units stream through machinery at high speed.
