What is Colgate Total toothpaste? - The unique formula of Colgate Total, containing fluoride and the antibacterial ingredient triclosan !! TRICLOSAN, unbelievable!

But here is their own website: http://www.colgateprofessional.com/products/Colgate-Total-Advanced-...

The excessive use of antibiotics (from the doctor and the foods we eat) is helping to create dangerous "superbugs." Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent. Triclosan appears bacteriostatic and is seen to target bacteria mainly by inhibiting fatty acid synthesis.

In the environment, triclosan may be degraded by microorganisms or react with sunlight, forming other compounds, which include between 3 to 12 % of chlorophenols and dioxin!!
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15779749

Although small amounts of dioxins are produced, there is a great deal of concern over this effect, because some dioxins are extremely toxic and are very potent endocrine disruptors. They are also chemically very stable, so that they are eliminated from the body very slowly (they can bioaccumulate to dangerous levels), and they persist in the environment for a very long time.

In August 2009, the Canadian Medical Association asked the Canadian government to ban triclosan use in household products under concerns of creating bacterial resistance and producing dangerous side products (chloroform).

A 2006 study concluded that low doses of triclosan act as an endocrine disruptor in the North American bullfrog.

Researchers are also finding that the majority of women are now showing traces of triclosan in their breast milk.

The hypothesis proposed is that triclosan blocks the metabolism of thyroid hormone, because it chemically mimics thyroid hormone, and binds to the hormone receptor sites, blocking them, so that normal hormones cannot be used. Triclosan has also been found in both the bile of fish living downstream from waste water processing plants and in human milk.

Triclosan has been used since 1972, and it is present in soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, shaving creams, mouth washes, and cleaning supplies.

Check your labels. Go now - look at your shaving cream and mouth wash and kitchen and bath cleaners.



LISTEN to this (unexpectedly dead) microbiologist and authority on antibiotic-resistant bacteria, (Dr. Michael Hudson - Chair of the Biology Department, UNC Charlotte)'s dire warning about the dangers of triclosan to the health of the Earth. (audio recording)
