“I suspect there are a lot of consumers who assume that by using an antibacterial soap product, they are protecting themselves from illness, protecting their families,” Sandra Kweder, deputy director of the FDA’s drug center, told the AP. “But we don’t have any evidence that that is really the case over simple soap and water.”
“I bought the lavender bar soap, started getting itching on my back . At first I thought it might be the detergent I used. I bought different detergent, but then saw a rash developing on my arms. I figured it was my comforter. I washed it in hot water. Finally, I saw it showing up on my other arm. I decided to google Dial lavender soap, and saw the first review which is exactly the rash and breakouts that are showing on me. I will definitely be discontinuing using Dial Soap.”
“You’ve probably heard about the overuse of antibiotics, which is said to be causing the rise of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.” Antibacterial products cause the same problem. They have the potential to create antibiotic-resistant bacteria. When antibiotics are used heavily, they can cause resistance, which is said to result from a small subset of a bacteria population with a random mutation that allows it to survive exposure to triclosan. When that chemical is used often enough, it kills other bacteria, while allowing this resistant subset to proliferate. When that happens on a wide enough scale, it may essentially render that chemical useless against that particular strain of bacteria.”
“There are a lot of theories about why allergies are on the rise and one is that the overly-sanitized environment that we live in is harming the development of our immune system. A study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology furthers this theory. It found that the triclosan commonly found in antibacterial products causes mutations, which may lead to food allergies.”
