Antibacterial soap in your toothpaste? YUM!

Tooth brushers beware. If you are using a certain type of toothpaste you may be ingesting this toxic ingredient that was just banned in hand sanitizers, hand soap and body washes.

Triclosan is in antibacterial soap and other products that has been used in some “anti-bacterial” products for years but was recently banned by the FDA because the safety of theses products was not clear.

Translation - Oh shoot, this stuff is bad, we messed up, lets get rid of it quick. But not completely because then the chemical companies will be mad at us.

The FDA banned 19 different antibacterial products, one of the most common being triclosan.
