Chemical Found in Colgate Toothpaste Linked to Cancer

A recent study found that Colgate products contains a harmful substance known as Triclosa, which could be carcinogenic and can cause serious diseases. This substance is able to penetrate the skin and disturb the function of the hormones by entering in the bloodstream, impacting the hormonal system and causing hormonal disturbances.

Triclosan is also found in most of the laundry detergents, hand sanitizers, deodorants and antiseptics. This substance can lead to cancer development if used in high quantity, according to a study from the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology.

For now, Canada is the only one country which disallowed the usage of Triclosan in their products. In the other countries, the government still doesn’t talk about the negative effect of this substance. They will wait some serious health problems to happen before banning it, which happened with asbestos, PCB and DT.

You should decide yourself if you are going to continue the products with Triclosan substance.
