Chemical Found In Colgate Toothpaste Linked To Cancer

Colgate toothpastes are the most popular toothpastes around the world, so you probably belong to the group of people who use it every day.

However, a study discovered it to possess a dangerous substance, Triclosa, which can be the reason for cancer development and appearance of other ailments. Triclosan is a common component of laundry detergents, deodorants, hand sanitizers and antiseptics.

Another study, conducted and published by the magazine Chemical research in toxicology, proved that this chemical, if used in great amounts, may lead to cancer.


This is not surprising because the government tends to tell us something is good until terrible things happen because of it, and they end up banning it like they did with asbestos, PCB’s, and DDT. Triclosan has no problem passing through the skin and immediately goes to interfering with hormone function. Canada is one step ahead of us as usual and has already put out a ban on products containing this chemical.

Despite the substantial amount of evidence against this chemical Colgate still claims that everything is fine and there is nothing to worry about, Should we believe them, or are they just trying to ensure they don’t lose money? There is profit to be made on the sick people in this world.
