Antibacterial agent called triclosan, which is widely used in personal care products, such as soap, can hinder muscles performance at the cellular level and reduce muscle mass.
This is the conclusion reached by the scientists from the University of California and Davis University of Colorado.
The existence of such reactions has been detected only in the laboratory. It was found that triclosan violates the ability to contract isolated heart muscle cells and skeletal muscle fibers.
It happens because of the connection failure of the proteins under the influence of triclosan. The experiment showed that triclosan acted on the body of fish and animals as a powerful cardiac depressant.
