Because the researchers looked at women who were exposed to triclosan, as well as many other chemicals, during their lives, this study can not prove that triclosan caused osteoporosis.

The hormone-disrupting chemical is commonly used in household items such as soap, mouthwash, hand sanitizers thanks to its antibacterial properties. Li added that Triclosan introduction might be a hazard factor for lower bone mineral thickness and osteoporosis.

The analysis of over 1,800 adult U.S. women, published Tuesday in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, also unsurprisingly suggested older women with higher levels of triclosan in their urine were more at risk of having weaker bones.

For the present examination, Li and partners analyzed information on 1,848 ladies in the US, found that those with the most elevated amounts of triclosan in their pee were over multiple times as liable to have osteoporosis as ladies with the least levels of triclosan.

Triclosan is added to some toothpastes, antibacterial soaps and body washes, as well as some cosmetics.

The analysts investigated information from 1,848 women to decide the connection among triclosan and bone health.

"Even after the recent ban of triclosan from most personal care products by the FDA, opportunities for unwanted human exposure abound from a large spectrum of consumer products containing significant quantities of this risky antimicrobial compound", Halden said. That's according to a study in Tuesday's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. It can also be found in clothing, kitchenware, furniture and toys.

Unilever is one manufacturer that has phased out triclosan from its entire range of products in response to consumer demand, although it says it is confident the chemical is safe.

A 2008 study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found triclosan in the urine of almost 75 percent of those tested.

When people use a product containing triclosan, they can absorb a small amount through their skin or mouth. Researchers have now linked the chemical to an increased risk of osteoporosis.

CNN reports that, "Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disease in which a person loses bone mineral density and with the bones weakened, it puts a person at an increased risk for fractures, back pain and loss of height".

It develops slowly over several years and is often diagnosed only when a small fall or sudden impact causes a bone fracture. Osteoporosis is usually not painful until a fracture occurs, but fractures of the spine are a common cause of long-term pain.
