Chemical Found In Colgate Toothpaste Linked To Cancer
You are probably one of the many that use Colgate brand of toothpaste. It’s no surprise, because it is the most used brand in the world.
A recent study has shown that this toothpaste contains a very dangerous ingredient that can be the cause of cancer, as well as of other ailments. The name of the ingredient is Triclosan, and besides in toothpaste, it is also used in hand sanitizers, deodorants, antiseptics and detergents for doing laundry.
Another research, published in the Chemical Research in Toxicology magazine, found that this chemical, when used in high quantities, can cause cancer.
The government and those responsible for banning hazardous ingredients are still quiet. They are probably going to remain quiet about the side effects this dangerous ingredients causes until some serious problem occurs. The case was the same with the well-known toxic substances such as PCB, asbestos and DT.
The only country in the world that has banned the Triclosan is Canada. This dangerous substance has the ability to penetrate through the skin and enter the blood and cause hormonal imbalance.
