The US FDA (Fools and Dummies Association) just can’t decide if common antibacterial, antimicrobial compounds (used in everything from hand sanitizers to deodorants) are causing health problems or not. Meanwhile, scientists are reporting that many pregnant women and their fetuses are at health risk when exposed to these substances. Triclosan and triclocarban, two of the most commonly used germ-killers in soaps and other everyday products, are now being found in EVERY urine samples from EVERY pregnant woman screened. What is worse than that is it is also being found in the umbilical cord blood samples – meaning that it can transfer to developing fetuses. The latest evidence shows that these antimicrobial compounds – used in more than 2,000 everyday products including toothpastes, soaps, detergents, carpets, paints, school supplies and toys – can lead to low birth weight, developmental problems and even antibiotic resistance. Don’t be a sheople people! Avoid these unnatural chemicals at all costs.
