Chemical Found In Colgate Toothpaste Linked to Cancer


Almost certainly the most famous toothpaste in the world is Colgate, and you are most likely one of the numerous people that use it daily.


But, in a current study it was uncovered that there is a dangerous substance in the Colgate toothpaste called Triclosa, which can cause cancer development and appearance of other ailments.A study that was current published in the Chemical Research in Toxicology journal found that this chemical encourages growth of the cancer cells.

Over the previous few years, there were many studies conducted, and all of them defined the health dangers linked to this chemical.Triclosan has the ability to pass through the skin and interfere with the function of the hormones and disrupt the endocrine. There is more, because as the study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives in 2008 pointed out, scientists detected triclosan in the urine of about 75 percent of the tested people (2,517 of them, aged 6 and more).And also numerous laundry detergents, hand sanitizers, deodorants and antiseptics have this substance.

According to a study published in the Chemical Research in Toxicology magazine, this chemical can trigger cancer if used in high quantities.This is a very dangerous substance that can pass through the skin and get into the blood, activating hormonal imbalance.But, even though there are many verifications and studies that prove this, Colgate still sells their product, claiming that it is totally safe to use. The only country in the world to have banned Triclosan so far is Canada.The government in our country though remains silent about the bad effects of this unsafe ingredient and will probably ban it only after some serious problems occur, as the case with asbestos, DT and PCB was.
