You may have heard over recent years about the growing concern regarding antibacterial soaps. While hand washing is one of the most effective ways to protect you and your family from getting sick, the soap you use may not have been the best choice. If you walk up and down the soap aisle at your local store you will find many different ones to choose from. There are at least 2,000 different products that have been previously labeled with the special “antibacterial” chemical. The FDA had stated that antibacterial soaps are not any more effective than using plain soap. They even went as far as stating that the makers of the antibacterial soaps had not proven them to be safe.
