Antibacterial Soaps May Promote Tumor Growth

A recent study published in "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences" suggest triclosan, a common antimicrobial chemical in consumer products is linked to allergy development in children and other cancer related dysfunction. The hypothesis was tested on a group of mice being exposed to triclosan regularly for six months. "The result showed abnormal cell proliferation, liver fibrosis, and inflammatory responses," and researcher say it "resemble the environment within which human liver cancer forms". This study is not suggesting triclosan cause cancer, but rather, regular exposure of this chemical can promote development of tumor. Currently, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are not regulating safety caution for triclosan, but they plan to commit to something in 2016. While this chemical is still in an estimated 75% of anitmicrobial soaps and body washes, some companies (such as Johnson and Palmolive) have begun to eliminate it due to health concerns. I feel like many consumer products out in the market has potential of being carcinogenic. It's just a matter of time exposing those chemicals. Ideally, these products should go through FDA for testing for safety before selling it to the public, but I guess that's not the case here. What are your thoughts about this?
