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.
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.”
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,
Care2 and ThePetitionSite Team“
Today’s “stone” is Day 280 it makes sense to stay away from cancer causing substances…uhuh, I signed the petition to go to the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health
