The Chemicals You Use Every Day Actually Could Be Changing Your Hormones
“The Food and Drug Administration is currently looking into the safety of triclosan, a chemical found in some hand sanitizers, as well as in antibacterial soaps and body washes. Triclosan disrupts the body's
endocrine system and helps to create bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.” http://www.mainstreet.com/article/family/family-health/hidden-health-danger-hand-sanitizers
“Alcohol-based hand sanitizer has its own potential hazards. Accidental poisoning can occur; keep the bottle away from the reach of unsupervised children. When signs indicate that a child may have ingested hand sanitizer, watch for sleepiness and upset stomach--signs of alcohol poisoning--and call a poison control center for advice. A September 8, 2009 article in the Houston Chronicle reports many incidents but no deaths. The high alcohol content also makes this type of sanitizer very anti-inflammatory and flammable--keep it away from open flames and other fire hazard environments. Hand sanitizer can also cause skin dryness, leading to broken skin, which exposes the body to the same contagions users are trying to prevent.” http://www.ehow.com/about_5505268_dangers-hand-sanitizer.html
“There is no argument that alcohol-based sanitizers are effective, but there is an argument on hand sanitizer dangers and whether or not they’re safe. Review and analysis of ethanol and alcohol-based sanitizers could lead to an amendment of the manufacturers ‘cookbook’ the FDA releases. It will bring to light the hazards of flammability, ingestion, and abuse of such products. Study results and a review of current events, could possibly lead to an increase in the awareness of the benefits associated with using alcohol-free hand purifiers, or the ban of hand sanitizers all together.” http://www.thetruthabouthandsanitizer.com
