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.
