Antibacterial soap and health

Posted Jan 15 2009 7:54pm
Coffee is served with a warning that it is hot. Practically every toy in the world is labeled for children over three only. Warnings are everywhere from the new blinds, crib bedding, blankets, toys, pajamas. These have clearly come as a result of lawsuits. But yet there are other things that no one mentions that are just now beginning to come to a head, partially I think, thanks to the internet. I’ve already written about BPA a chemical found in many plastics and it’s risks. This time it’s chemicals in antibacterial soaps. Now this one I’ve known about for a little while but as a Mom not using antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and the ilk is parallel to neglect. There is research that the chemicals triclosan (TCS) and triclocarbon (TCC), frequently used anti microbials are found in the environment and drinking water samples. They show no meaningful difference for handwashing but we don’t know what the long term difference is when we drink them. But wouldn’t it make sense to consider that?
