Thanks for posting this--I'm glad to read it. I've avoided triclosan containing products for years, because I feel like they contribute to bacterial resistance, and they aren't nearly as effective as they would need to be to do any good. They might kill off some of the weaker bacteria, leaving the stronger one behind to keep on reproducing. I haven't read the study mentioned in the article, so I'm not sure of the specifics, but it definitely sounds like one more reason to avoid these products.
