What is Colon cancer
There was a recent linking of the bacteria-killing compound to gut irritation. The bacteria-killing compounds are known as the triclosan. Household products like detergents, toothpaste and mouthwash have this bacteria-killing compound. According to the researchers, this chemical can promote in developing the colon cancer.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst collaborated with thirteen other universities for exploring the triclosan in mice. According to the research of these universities, they found the compounds that promote the development of colon cancer.
Now according to the researchers, the bacteria-killing chemical compound can cause low-grade inflammation in healthy and normal mice. When they gave triclosan at a concentration to the mice the inflammation became worse. This also reported in human blood plasma.
Researchers on colon cancer
The chemical accelerated while developing the colitis. Colitis is a type of inflammation that can lead to rectal bleeding, diarrhoea, abdominal spasms, abdominal pain in humans and also the growth of tumours. Haixia Yang is a researcher. According to the public article by him, it reduced the lifespan in one group of mice. There are harmful effects of the compound which is because of the gut microbiome. It also lowered the population of Bifidobacterium which is good bacteria.
It is nearly impossible to avoid the contact with triclosan. This is because the triclosan is one of the most common antimicrobials. More than 2000 consumer products have this. There are more researchers left for understanding the impact of the chemical mainly on human and also other species. According to the centre of disease control and prevention, inflammation bowel disease affects around three million Americans. Among these Americans, most of them have Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
Colorectal cancer, colon cancer and rectum cancer are cancer leading second among another cancer killer in the country. More updates will come on this after the researchers complete their researchers. To know more, keep your eye on market update.
