Too clean, too sensitive. brings us yet another report on the problems with cleanliness:

The modern trend for using antibacterial soaps is actually harming young people by making them more prone to developing allergies.

It seems teenagers are becoming over-exposed to a compound called triclosan, widely used in household products such as soaps, toothpaste, pens and nappy bags.

Food cans, toothbrushes and garbage bags are also generally high in bisphenol A. To keep them well-sealed and antiseptic, of course.
