Can face wash with triclosan that got in mouth, or toothpaste that contains it, cause salivary gland tumors?Wouldnt more people have them if it could?

Unlikely: What you described is unlikely to result on salivary gland tumors or any other disorder. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
