Those of you who follow this blog regularly know that I’m a huge proponent of a natural lifestyle. It seems like every day there is a new study out showing the dangers of the synthetic chemicals in products we encounter every day, from processed foods to household cleaners.
The most recent scandal focuses on triclosan, the bacteria-fighting ingredient in Colgate Total, as well as many soaps, detergents, and other products. In studies done on mice, rats and frogs, this ingredient has been shown to cause reduced fertility, development issues in fetuses, and increased cancer risk.
So, what’s a person to do? Look for natural solutions, of course!
