As dangerous to our ability to treat basic illnesses is hand sanitizer.
It uses the same chemicals as antibacterial soaps and contributes to the evolution of the superbugs that are making people so ill.
The primary chemical culprit is Triclosan.
Triclosan is absorbed by the skin and has been linked to infertility, early puberty, and poor heart function.
Triclosan disrupts cell communications, and can lead to muscle and coordination issues.
If you absolutely must use a hand sanitizer, make sure it is an alcohol based product that does not contain any Triclosan.
