Manhood Washed Away: You Could Unknowingly be Annihilating Your Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 2nd, 2018

The sweet-smelling soap you’re using to wash your hands and body could be wiping out your testosterone.

In fact, multiple studies are linking low testosterone to two insidious chemicals: Triclosan and Triclocarban.

These compounds are found seemingly everywhere, from bar soap to toothpaste, and even in some kitchen supplies like cutting boards and sponges.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in the middle of what’s called a monograph, which means they’re investigating the safety of the chemicals.

And the companies who make antibacterial soaps will have to prove that the benefits of their products outweigh the health risks.

“Both chemicals affect testosterone production in men, as well as thyroid functions and endocrine systems as well,” explains Dr. Todd Howell, the Medical Director for The Aesthetic Medicine and Anti-Aging Clinics of Louisiana.

The FDA approved the use of Triclosan and Triclocarban in 1993.

Companies use the products to make their products antibacterial or antimicrobial.

Howell explains that “I wouldn’t go as far as saying all antibacterial soaps are bad. You want to pick up your product and look at the label and look for triclosan or triclocarban.”

Over the past 20 years, testosterone levels in adult men in the U.S. have plummeted by a third.

Low testosterone levels can lead to depression, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, infertility…and the list goes on and on.

Dr. Howell says other environmental factors can also result in low testosterone levels.

“Chemicals in plastic when we heat it…to pesticides.

There are lots of things out there that we know for a fact increase estrogen and decrease testosterone levels in men,” Howell explains.

The FDA is in a review process that will last until 2016 on the chemicals.

But even when the study concludes, the FDA is known for allowing products to continue to be sold, in spite of their dangers. Therefore, don’t wait on them. Here is a list of products that contain triclosan:

It is, of course, tough to completely avoid these products.

But do your best to choose other options whenever possible.

In addition to this list, here are a few additional suggestions to stay on the safe side:

Avoid anything labeled “antibacterial” or “antimicrobial” which contains triclosan or triclocarban, such as soaps, gels, cleansers, toothpaste, cosmetics and other personal care products.

Avoid other “antibacterial” or “antimicrobial” items such as cutting boards, towels, shoes, clothing, and bedding.

Use regular soap and hot water to clean effectively. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers when you don’t have access to running water.

Don’t let your hard work in the gym, along with your healthy eating habits and smart supplementation go down the drain.

Study this list, and remember these rules.
