According to the study of South Korea, one common ingredient of an antibacterial additive called triclosan that said to be promoting c****r and other significant implications for humans. The study of Kyung-Chul Choi and colleagues from Chungbuk National University and the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology revolves on how triclosan affects the hormonal system.
Triclosan, known as hormone-disruptor, feminizes hormone estrogen that leads to altering the normal production and expression of other hormones like testosterone. It also throws the endocrine system out of balance, leading to abnormal cellular growths.
On the article published by Real Farmacy, triclosan triggers the growth of breast c****r cells that leads to formations of malignant tumors. Choi wrote:
“Although the doses of EDCs were somewhat high, we did this to simulate the effects of daily exposure, as well as body accumulation due to long-term exposure, simultaneously in animal experiments.”
“Thus, exposure to EDCs may significantly increase the risk of breast c****r development and adversely affect human health.”
Another antibacterial chemical called octylphenol also promotes c****r. When these two ingredients work together, it amplifies the growth and spread of c****r cells. According to ScienceDaily.com:
“Research has found that two EDCs — triclosan, an antimicrobial ingredient in many products, including soaps, cosmetics and cutting boards; and octylphenol, which is in some paints, pesticides and plastics — have accumulated in the environment.”
“Additionally, triclosan is reportedly in the urine of an estimated 75 percent of Americans.”
For years, consumer groups such as Beyond Pesticides and the Environmental Working Group (EWG) raised awareness of the dangers of triclosan.
“Studies have increasingly linked triclosan and its chemical cousin triclocarban, to a range of adverse health and environmental effects, from skin irritation, endocrine disruption, bacterial and compounded antibiotic resistance, to the contamination of water and its negative impact on fragile aquatic ecosystems,” said Beyond Pesticides.
