What is Triclosan? How Does it Affect Your Health?

It has been said that we live in a toxic world.  I don’t believe it has to be that way.  We try to buy soaps and hygiene products that are organic and avoid anti-bacterial labels.  Dr. Mercola published an article today that educated me about “triclosan”.  Triclosan and its effects have been known about for 35 years and is found in 3 out of 4 Americans according to Mercola’s article.  This chemical is being linked to bacterial resistance.  It is causing environmental contamination and it harms muscle function and its ability to contract according to a UC Davis study done on mice.   This chemical has also been linked to endocrine system disruption.  The video below will give an overview of triclosan.  Warning:  There is some mildly strong language in the video.
