Toxic Ingredients to Avoid in Personal Care Products

- 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 in humans

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.

Found In: Anti-bacterial hand wash, antibacterial toys, etc.
