The antimicrobial chemical triclosan in antibacterial soaps is believed to disrupt thyroid function and hormone levels in people. When it enters the wastewater, it can cause *** changes in aquatic life. Health experts believe that overuse of this and other antibacterial chemicals is promoting the growth of bacteria that are resistant to antibacterial treatment.

Better alternative: Good old-fashioned soap and warm water will kill just as many germs, studies have shown. If you must use a hand sanitizer, pick one that’s alcohol-based and doesn’t list triclosan or other chemicals on its label.

I read your article about the soap and how bad it is and want to tell you about some thing I saw on the news here in Austin,TX.
The university of Texas,here in Austin is thinking about changing their soap that they have in bathrooms from antibacterial to regular old hand soap.It seems that some of their students have relize that this soap is deadly.
Thanks for the great artical
