In this article we are going to reveal the awful truth about the hand sanitizers, one of the most widely used cosmetic products when it comes to washing your hands in order to protect yourself from bacteria and dirt. If you are among those who use hand sanitizer often, after reading this article you may think twice before you reach out for this universal product.
Since you don’t always have an acces to soap and water and since they can be found everywhere, in the stores, supermarkets and etc., you have no choice but to use this product as an easy way to kill germs and dirt.
Nevertheless, recently has been brought to our attention that they may be detrimental for our health-because it kills both the bad and the good germs.
Namely, there are certain bacteria that your body needs for keeping your immune system in good condition. Killing the good bacteria in your body can weaken your immune system, and when bad bacteria enter your body, your immune system may not be able to fight against them. Therefore, you are very likely to fall ill, even more ill than you would have if you hadn’t used the hand sanitizer at all.
But the danger of hand sanitizer uses doesn’t stop here. Another major danger of using a hand sanitizer is that it increases the amount of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that can cause serious damage on your endocrine system-the system that is responsible for producing hormones, controling your body functions and maintaining your tissues and organs.
According to recent studies, the increased levels of BPA in the body causes numerious health issues like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, infertility and many other. Now, that you are aware of the harm that your hand sanitizer can do, like weakening your endocrine system, which can increase the risk of developing serious health problems, you will certainly stop using it and replace it with some healthier variance.
