Researchers are now finding that the active ingredient in antimicrobial soaps and personal care products causes nerve damage.
Researchers are now finding that the active ingredient in antimicrobial soaps and personal care products causes nerve damage. The ingredient is called MIT (methylisothiazolinone), and it is found in antimicrobial soaps, hand soaps, dish soaps and a surprising number of personal care products. People buy these personal care products thinking they're protecting themselves from infectious microbes. They think it makes them immune to viruses and bacteria that might be found in their bathrooms or kitchens, and thus they believe in the mythology of using antimicrobial soaps to create a sterile environment in their own homes. the reality is that they're giving themselves nervous system disorders while actually promoting the breeding of resistant strains of bacteria.
