Triclosan is affecting our health! Be careful you are not using it!

Triclosan is affecting our health! Be careful you are not using it!

I received a fantastic email from one of my readers who recommended I research the topic of Triclosan. I am so glad I did as I wasn’t even aware of it and what it could be doing to us! I use Colgate toothpaste and it is in that!

It is an ingredient found in a number of products but mostly anti-bacterial soaps but you will be horrified at how many products contain it.

It is a scary thing. This stuff has been linked to the following:

  • Damages the liver
  • Damages kidneys
  • Suppresses our immune system
  • Alters our hormone state
  • Birth defects
  • Cancer!

Now, it is likely you are using this nasty chemical and you are probably not even aware of it. It is found in all the anti-bacterial soaps, cleansers, make-up, deodorants and even on kids products.

What it was originally designed for is to protect people in hospitals from getting sick. The idea is that it will kill off any bacteria that might cause infection or disease. The problem is that it also kills all the good bacteria which the body needs to fight off possible pathogens and some of those bacteria help with our digestion. This is fine if we are trying to prevent aids or some nasty diseases but the body shouldn’t be exposed to it on a daily basis.

Avoid any of the cleansers out on the market as they are likely to contain it – as usual CHECK THE LABEL. This includes Clearasil and even some of those “natural sounding” ones.  Tea tree cleanser! I use honey – honestly it is so much better than anything I have ever used! 🙂

The thing is, it is all aiding to our livers work-load. We want to minimise it as much as we can! All these additional dioxins and chemicals are just placing more strain on the liver. These are easy to avoid and we are hopefully avoiding most of these products anyway as they also contain other nasty chemicals we can’t pronounce.

Here is the full list:

Thanks Annabelle for the suggestion to help inform everyone out there on what we are really using!

What did you find in your house? Did you find you have been using a product for years that could be hurting your healing? Which products did you find with Triclosan in it?

Would love to hear from you!
