Chemicals in Common Antiseptic Products May Cause Infertility
A new study from the University of California finds that chemicals in such common household products as hand wipes, disinfectants, and mouthwash, contain “quats” (quaternary ammonium compounds), destroying germs and causing infertility in women.
A team of researchers looked over 1,600 compounds containing quats. They discovered that these chemicals really block human mitochondria and make them working incorrectly. They also affect the hormone estrogen, which plays a vital part in women falling pregnant.
Dr. Gino Cortopassi, co-author of a study on the chemicals says: “However we don’t yet know what levels these compounds reach in humans.’ Quats, used since the 1940s, are good disinfectants because they dissolve the cell membranes of germs found in our homes. They work the same way to kill bugs in our mouths.”
