Preventing early onset puberty, reduced fertility and cancer. Beware of Triclosan!
The Food & Water Watch organization(FWW) works on our behalf to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainable. So we can all enjoy and trust in what we eat and drink, they work to help people take charge of where our food comes from, keep clean, affordable, public tap water flowing freely to our homes, protect the environmental quality of oceans, force government to do its job protecting citizens, and educate about the importance of keeping shared resources under public control.
Last year the FWW worked hard to gather support for an appeal to the EPA to ban the use of Triclosan in everyday, household products. Triclosan is a devil in disguise. It is an anti-bacterial agent found more and more in personal care and home cleaning products. It poses numerous threats to human and environmental health. Like Bisphenol-A (BPA), triclosan is a hormone disruptor, which could lead to problems like early onset puberty, reduced fertility and cancer. New and emerging science increasingly supports the need for an immediate ban on triclosan.
We are unfortunately surrounded by toxic elements in our food, water and everyday products in our homes. When we have the knowledge and opportunity to remove something unnecessary and dangerous from our lives, it really is a no brainer - for we are fighting a mountain of toxic chemicals that needs to be removed...Otherwise we will continue to live with increasing sickness and disease.
Please take less than 1 minute to support the ongoing efforts in helping to keep us safe. Let the EPA know that you know and care ~ click here where you will also find supporting information as to why Triclosan is so dangerous and about the research behind these findings.
