Antimicrobial fail

Triclosan is finally on the way out – and good riddance. Manufacturers are starting to distance themselves from using the nasty chemical triclosan as an antimicrobial ingredient in soaps, toothpastes and other products. Here’s just one more reason why: Scientists are now reporting even more new evidence that triclosan, as well as another commercial antimicrobial called octylphenol, promote the growth of breast cancer cells. Not only do these antimicrobial agents fail to do what regular soap and water do (clean hands safely), they also cause hormonal imbalances that play a role in the development of breast cancer and other diseases. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals have become ubiquitous in personal care products, all through the environment and lodge in our bodies. Triclosan is now found in the urine of some 75% of Americans.
