Recent reports suggest mouth wash causes mouth cancer.

This mouthwash is alcohol free, so you should be safe enough!

Seriously though, at least read the text in the link that you give:

The authors of this review have presented their own subjective opinion about the evidence for harms associated with alcohol-based mouthwash. Importantly, they highlight the fact that some studies have found no link between these mouthwashes and oral cancer. This confirms a difference of opinion that will require further investigation.

The NHS website makes clear that "The publication is a non-systematic, narrative review of the evidence linking mouth cancer with the use of alcohol-based mouthwashes"

In other words it's a story, not the result of rigorous and systematic research! Over the years I've seen a lot of rubbish published in peer reviewed journals so don't believe every 'research result' you read about in the papers. Personally I'll believe a link when I see the results of a rigorous large scale study showing that there probably is one.

They also had 3 different versions of colgate toothpaste on the same shelf £1 from £2.49
cant remember the different varieties tho so didnt bother posting as a deal

There are couple hundred more articles you can have a browse here reporting the concerns too.
