Our quest for a “global-sterile-toothbrush solution” started over 30 years ago in a university-microbiology project conducted by the GT2K’s inventor, Jim Song. Jim believes that there is a powerful overwhelming association between the fact that over 85% of the world’s population has silent symptomless gum disease and the fact that nearly everyone brushes their teeth daily with germ-infested toothbrushes. His book “Why Your Toothbrush May Be Killing You…Slowly” discusses in depth the health issues.
Common sense alone dictates that “clean” has to be healthier than “dirty,” especially when it comes to an instrument that you put in your mouth. Yet all germ experts agree that the toothbrush, never sterilized, is one of the dirtiest things in the house harboring and breeding millions of broad-spectrum germs.
