good information more  
All toothpastes contains foaming agents. Try using ayurveda pastes or dandhmangans, as these are foaming agents free. Wash with edible alum powder or wash with salt Luke warm water. more  
Always resort to salt water gargle in lukewarm water for mouth wash, don't use any chemically treated items. Problem solved, yet I don't think Listerine will affect stomach cancer. more  
Listerin is very old brand product and it was used by people for more than five or six decades. There was no complain from an user and Doctor also. It's truly shocking to know such serious impact. Still it's better to have more analysis as such incidence we had witnessed for other products. Validity of such research findings is also a question besides taking precautionary measures to protect health. more  
Yes it is dangerous more
