Antibacterials in Personal Care Products Linked to Allergy Risk

Antibacterials in Personal-Care Products Linked to Allergy Risk in Children

Exposure to common antibacterial chemicals and preservatives found in soap, toothpaste, mouthwash and other personal-care products may make children more prone to a wide range of food and environmental allergies, according to new research from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.

Keep in mind the researchers found an association, which does not yet prove causation - and that is why they plan more research. But interesting findings nonetheless.
