Environmental Pollutants - Triclosan
Triclosan is used in a variety of anti-bacterial products, including toothpaste, mouthwash, soap, laundry detergent, cosmetics, lotions, creams and deodorant. When combined with the trace amounts of chlorine found in everyday tap water, it can become a chlorine gas, a known carcinogen. The cancer causing properties of Triclosan are currently under investigation by the FDA.
In addition to becoming chlorine gas, it is believed Triclosan can become a dioxin via exposure to direct sunlight or some other form of ultraviolet radiation. Dioxins are very difficult for the body to purge since they are chemically stable and build up in the body over time. These are the primary causes for concern and the reason products which use Triclosan are being labeled in order to inform consumers of their risks.
