Synthetic musks have been reported to have been found in the urine and blood samples of  teenage girls together with other chemicals discussed in  previous newsletters. Read the report here:

Triclosan is a common antibacterial agent used in toothpastes, soaps, washes and cosmetics. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), see their article here,  say that triclosan is not known to be hazardous to humans, but lately this ingredient has been reviewed. FDA is reviewing all of the available evidence on this ingredient's safety in consumer products but the sole fact that they have found this chemical in the blood and urine samples of teenager girls, is not a comforting thought. It is now a proven fact that triclosan not only increases resistance to bacteria, but that it also alters hormone regulation in animal studies.
