Triclosan is added to everyday household products to help prevent bacterial contamination. It has been on the market for over 40 years and will remain on the market at least until the FDA concludes its investigations.
Lawyersandsettlements reported, in August, 2012, that triclosan, according to new scientific evidence, has been found to restrict muscle contractions in mice and fish. According to a report by CBSnews.com, researchers initially tested the antibacterial chemical on isolated heart muscle fibers from humans. They found that the communications channels that allow muscle movement became blocked when Triclosan was introduced, which, theoretically, would lead to skeletal and cardiac muscle failure.
