A video from DNews explains why you need to toss out that hand sanitizer ASAP.
Hand sanitizers are a quick and convenient way to clean your hands whether you are at school, on the subway or on the go. However, hand sanitizer can be dangerous for you. Recent studies show that it can increase your skin’s absorption of BPA, or Bisphenol-A, a chemical commonly used in the production of hard plastics. BPA mimics our hormones and disrupts our bodies’ functioning systems. Frighteningly enough, high BPA has been linked to hormone disorders, heart disease, infertility and cancer.
