Alright, what the hell toothpaste?  Why do you always do this to me?  I forget to get my morning OJ before brushing, then I can’t enjoy the pulpy goodness for the rest of the morning.  What gives?  Well, according to Robert T. Gonzalez at, it has to do with flavor receptors on our tongues. “There are four main ingredients in most any toothpaste. Water, abrasives, fluoride and detergent. The detergent sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) is known for nerfing sweetness receptors, and clears your mouth of phospholipids which usually prevent orange juice’s bitter molecules from reaching your tongue’s bitterness receptors.”  If you are as geeky as I am, read more here and check out the youtube video at the bottom of this post.  A big hurray for science!  And a big fuck you to toothpaste.  Bon app y’all.
