FTA: "Meanwhile at least one of Colgate's competitors has begun running ads declaring that its products contain no Triclosan at all."

They tell us the name of the toothpaste that could make us crazy, but they omit the name of the safer product to be used. Thanks, Bill Palmer.

Didn't the next to last episode of House land on triclosan as the reason the forensic examiner went mad?

I guess they updated it?

I'm glad the FDA is doing this, but I have to think that the risk of "mania" (as stated in the article) must be extraordinarily tiny. Otherwise we would have seen a dramatic rise in manic people over the last couple of decades. But the Tea Party has only been active in the last five years or so.

So I should tell Mrs 'Bunny she'd be happier if she were a little more dirty?

It really depends on the episode. And no, not personally. I have worked with manic people and have only been hypomanic so I know the symptoms intimately and have peered over the ledge. I apologize for making light of the illness. That said, you might want to chill out or unplug the wedgie. This is late night Fark.

First they came for the carmel coloring, and I did not speak out because I didn't care if the food I ate was brown. Then they came for the Triclosan, and I did not speak out because I was too busy reenacting Hamlet with turd finger puppets.

Yup, using the wrong soap can be trouble. I used to wash my hands with sheep dip till I finally asked myself "How did I get to this farm, where are my pants, and how badly do I really want to pledge that stupid fraternity?"

If concern about triclosan might get rid of antibacterial soaps, I say bring it on. Any excuse will do.

Oh man the things they say will make you frightening and alarms sleeping in enormous coffee cans from CostCo all for you to buy a soap that the vendor relations betray but you know that I use the triclosan and my friends' correspondence is healthful in the overwhelming regards to both my own and those of my own so this is one family who will be solidarity to and of those who are companies in this manner of crisis despite talking heads and government boogiemen that restrict me at home, hearth, and highway and jackbooted thugs splaying arms and disorient sirens to terrorize and rob and extinguish those advancements which made fundamental the principals and doctrines of salient individuals seeking a security and democratic ideal which is lost in counter-intellectual musings of starlets and hyper-sexual beef-hormone teen-popvertizing which only leaves my children dazing in diabetes opium dens to be preyed on by cheats and swindlers with no regard for the gentle soaps that I, me, we, and this nation use to pulverize and decimate their sundry material thoughts from every seat cushion and door handle that my carpenter's hands have been cruelly forced upon by flash suited ad-men and their psychologic mind-bending tricks to allure and extort.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given makers of Triclosan based "antibacterial" soaps three years to demonstrate that their products provide benefits beyond that of standard soaps or face punitive action .


Yes, in the meantime just go ahead and use the American people as your guinea pigs.

Yeah, as someone with just straight depression, I'd LOVE a manic episode or three. I might actually get anything done ever, especially where the things have to do with talking to people I don't know. Also, just having a break from the "I will never feel any less depressed" thing. It may still suck, but at least it'd be DIFFERENT suck for a change.

Anti-bacterial soap hasn't helped any though. Also, as this article fails to mention, it's a major cause of antibiotic resistance, since at the level of exposure you get, it doesn't kill all the bugs, only the least resistant ones.

Have you tried only washing your hands in cold water, and not warming them near heat vents? You might be scalding or baking your skin -- slowly, but enough.

Thanks for the concern.  Cold water causes a mild case of cracked skin to turn into a hornet's nest of stinging within fifteen minutes.   Wrencher presents an effective solution: lotion.  If only it were not so greasy and girly and such.

I meant after your hands are healed. Most people don't realize they're scalding their hands. I just use cold water now on my hands, and the dry, cracked skin stopped happening.
