Is Your Antibacterial Hand Soap Helping or Hurting? 

Antibacterial hand soaps are popular in the fight against bugs during the cold/ flu season. But is it really helping? Many studies have failed to show that antibacterial hand soap is more effective in preventing illness than washing with soap and warm water. In fact, recent studies suggest that triclosan, the active ingredient in antibacterial hand soaps may cause problems with reproductive hormones, brain activity, and muscle function. These research findings have caused the FDA to take a second look at the safety of products containing triclosan. The safest bet – wash your hands often with soap and warm water.
