(Amherst, MA) — Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst are warning that a common ingredient used in toothpaste could be linked to cancer. The chemical, called triclosan, can be found in over 2,000 consumer products, including cosmetics, toys and kitchenware. Researchers found that the chemical caused gut inflammation and cancer in mice when used in small doses. They say that there must be an urgent attempt to determine if humans have the same reaction to the chemical.
