Common Antibacterial Chemical Under FDA Review

A popular anitbacterial chemical found in hundreds of everyday products is under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over concern for its safety.

Studies of triclosan - found in houshold antibacterial products from toothpaste to toys - suggest that the chemical could increase the risk of infertility and early puberty and other hormone-related problems in humans.

The FDA's 40-year review over whether triclosan is safe was supposed to be released in 2012, but the release is now planned for later this year. Until this review is finalized, companies are permitted to use the chemical in their products.

Consumer advocates have already questioned the chemical's use in the past after the FDA said it has no evidence soaps made with triclosan "provide any benefit over washing with regular soap and water." Read the full story here:

Popular Antibacterial Soap Ingredient Draws FDA Scrutiny

There does not seem to be clear evidence whether Triclosan is safe; however, there also does not seem to be any clear evidence that it poses any benefit. With no proven benefit, why take the risk?
