John Keel and Your Bleeding Gums

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 6:52 pm

The ’80s were difficult years for John.  The market and audience had changed, forteana was unfashionable, and he wasn’t selling much.  He worked on a number of novels and plays, but without success.  He decided to make a few bucks with mail order, selling ad sheets and booklets from his P.O. Box.  Among them was a recipe for toothpaste, presented with his usual gusto.



  1. Great tip John,

    what I could add to it is that I am not a big fan of using baking soda every day, because it is abrasive and could damage your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide is a good a good microbe killer indeed. But you know what, the most important element is the tooth brush…lol
    If we use our tooth brush apropriately, we don’t even need any tooth paste or anything…
    The important part is to remove the dental plque and that only the tooth brush can do. Baking soda everyonce in a while is good to keep stain out of teeth and hydrogen peroxide controls bacterial population (everyonce in a while is also good!)

    I will leave a link to a related topic on my website, but your are most welcome to delete it if you feel like… ; )

    thanks for the word!

  2. John’s teeth were certainly in bad shape in his later years. I’d take his dental advice with caution…
