Colgate is considered the most popular toothpaste worldwide. Many people use it on daily basis without ever giving it a second thought of what it might contain and what it might cause.\
A recent study has unfortunately revealed that the Colgate toothpaste contained a dangerous substance by the name of Triclosan that has the ability to trigger the development of cancer cells as well as other health issues.
This substance encourages the growth of the cancer cells according to many previous studies that all ended up with positive results about the link between the toothpaste and cancer.
What this substance does is that it penetrates the skin and it interferes with the hormone function and disrupts the endocrine. What makes it even scarier is that a study conducted back in 2008 tested 2500 individuals and 75% of them had Triclosan in their urine.
But the toothpaste is not the only product that contains this substance. Laundry detergents as well as deodorants, hand sanitizers and antiseptics contain this substance too.
If used in high quantities, this chemical has the potential to cause cancer, according to a study published in the Chemical Research in Toxicology.
Although there have been numerous studies that confirm these scary results, the Colgate company continues to sell their products claiming that they are perfectly safe to use. For now, Canada remains the only country where Triclosan is banned.
But many governments continue to hide the fact that this substance causes dangerous side-effects.
To wrap it all up, the government is probably not going to do anything about it any time soon, which is why we must take our health into our own hands, do research and avoid these products.
