Take Triclosan Out of Everyday Products!

Here is an new Action Alert from my email to share:

 Action Alert!  Triclosan is a known endocrine disruptor, linked with thyroid problems and cancer.  Please Share…it helps.

Take Triclosan Out of Everyday Products!

Dear Eldy,

Triclosan — the active ingredient in most antibacterial products — is a known endocrine disruptor, which can cause thyroid problems and cancer. The Canadian Medical Association has called for triclosan to be banned from consumer products out of concern that it could contribute to antibiotic resistant “superbugs.”

Help get triclosan out of our everyday products! Urge Health Canada to ban the household use of triclosan.

The long-term side effects of chronic low-grade exposure to triclosan are unknown. Yet through the proliferation of triclosan in consumer products, Canadians are subject to chronic exposure to this chemical.

Canadians shouldn’t be brushing their teeth and washing their dishes with a cancer-causing chemical! Speak out against triclosan in our household products.

  Thank you for taking action,

Kayla
