Triclosan Exposure Linked to Osteoporosis among U.S. Women   (Beyond Pesticides, July 3, 2019)    'A disturbing association between urinary triclosan concentrations and osteoporosis has been identified in an epidemiological study...The study adds weight to previous laboratory results, which showed that endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as triclosan can interfere with bone metabolism. Triclosan and its byproducts are known endocrine disruptors and have been shown in laboratory studies to interfere with collagen and bone structure. Taken together with previous findings, the new epidemiological results demonstrate that the ubiquitous endocrine disruptor triclosan “could lead to lower BMD benchmark dose and increased prevalence of osteoporosis in U.S. adult women.”'
