Natural Antibacterials: Get Triclosan and Other Nasty Chemicals Out of Your Home

Scientists fear that antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan actually may encourage drug-resistant stains by selecting bacteria resistant to them and cross-resistant to antibiotics. “After years of overuse and misuse…bacteria have developed antibiotic resistance, which has become a global health crisis,” Tufts University School of Medicine researcher Stuart B. Levy reports in “Antibacterial Household Products: Cause for Concern.”

“The relatively recent increase of surface antibacterial agents or biocides into healthy households may contribute to the resistance problem.” Registered as a pesticide, triclosan has a chemical formulation and molecular structure similar to some of the most toxic chemicals on earth—including dioxins and PCBs.
