Chemicals in cosmetics, toothpaste put women at a greater risk for osteoporosis

Chemicals in cosmetics, toothpaste put women at a greater risk for osteoporosis”

A new study indicates that it also exposes women more to osteoporosis. A person can be exposed to triclosan via consumer products - like soaps, hand sanitisers, toothpaste, and mouthwash - and contaminated water.

The analysis of over 1,800 grownup USA ladies, revealed Tuesday in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, also unsurprisingly advised older women with increased levels of triclosan of their urine had been more prone to having weaker bones. The discovery was found in the examination of the women's urine and showed the connection between the women's higher levels of triclosan and the higher risk of developing osteoporosis later in life.

"Laboratory studies have demonstrated that triclosan may have potential to adversely affect the bone mineral density in cell lines or in animals". Li added that Triclosan introduction might be a hazard factor for lower bone mineral thickness and osteoporosis.

Manufacturers add it to reduce or prevent bacterial contamination and in toothpastes it helps prevent gingivitis.

But consumers do need to read the labels because triclosan is in a lot of cosmetics and personal care items that aren't necessarily marketed as antibacterial products. Another study suggested it may be linked to the spread of antibiotic resistance. No such ban exists in the UK.

"If a product contains triclosan, this should be listed on the label", Claudio said.

The report was published online June 25 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Regulators in the United Kingdom did not follow suit, however its use is being phased out gradually in Europe. It can also be found in clothing, kitchenware, furniture and toys, Sky News reported.

"People who are concerned can avoid products that contain triclosan by reading the labels", Claudio advised.

The study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how triclosan might directly cause osteoporosis. Often, there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.

The most common injuries in people with osteoporosis are wrist, hip and spinal bone fractures. However, they can also occur in other bones, such as the arm or pelvis.

Sometimes a cough or sneeze can cause a rib fracture or the partial collapse of one of the bones of the spine.
