- Synthetic “antibacterial” with a chemical
structure similar to Agent Orange!
- The EPA registers Triclosan as a pesticide, giving it
high scores as a risk to human health and the environment
- It is in a class of chemicals suspected of causing cancer
It may produce dioxin, a hormone-disrupting chemical with
toxic effects measured in parts per trillion; that is
equivalent to one drop in 300 Olympic sized swimming pools!
Hormone disruptors can change genetic material, decrease
fertility and sexual function and foster birth defects.
Internally, it can lead to cold sweats, circulatory collapse
and convulsions. Stored in the body fat, it can accumulate
to toxic levels, damaging the liver, kidneys and lungs
and can cause paralysis, brain hemorrhages and heart problems.
Tufts University, School of Medicine says Triclosan can
force the emergence of “super bugs” that it
cannot kill. Its wide-spread use in antibacterial cleaners,
tooth pastes and household products may have nightmarish
implications on future generations, with a half life in
our water supply of over 500 years.
