In a recent study revealed that there is a dangerous substance in Colgate toothpaste called Triclosan, which can trigger cancer development and appearance of other ailments.
A study was recently published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology found that this substance stimulates the growth of cancer cells. Over the past few years, there were many studies done, and they all describe the health hazards associated with the chemical.
Triclosan has the ability to penetrate through the skin and interfere with the function of hormones and endocrine disrupting.
This is not all, because as the study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives in 2008 indicated, scientists detected triclosan in the urine of about 75 percent of the people tested (2,517 of them, 6 years and more).
Numerous detergents, sanitizers, deodorants and antiseptics contain this substance.
According to a study published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, this chemical can cause cancer if used in large quantities.
This is a very dangerous substance that can penetrate the skin and enter the blood, causing a hormonal imbalance.
However, although there are many tests and studies that confirm this, Colgate continues to sell its product, claiming it is completely safe to use. The only country that has banned Triclosan so far is Canada.
The government in our country, but remains silent about the side effects of this dangerous ingredient and prohibit probably occur only after some serious problems, as the case with asbestos, PCB and was DT.
In summary, we have to decide and take care of our health for ourselves, and we can put restrictions on some harmful influences that can harm our health.
