Is mouthwash dangerous?

I saw this article about mouthwash contributing to diabetes: http://www.newsweek.com/mouthwash-may-trigger-diabetes-if-you-use-way-way-too-much-it-720931 How good is the science? Should I stop using it?

  • Excessive mouthwash does not benefit oral hygiene and depending on the ingredients of the mouthwash could actually be harmful. Nothing replaces brushing and flossing to kill bacteria and keep your mouth clean daily.

  • Is the diabetes connection real?

  • I am going to share this information with my family members who have Type 2 Diabetes.
