Antimicrobial Additive Triclosan Linked to Fatty Liver Disease

New research has uncovered a link with Triclosan and fatty liver disease.  More specifically, scientists found that the chemical accelerated the development of fatty liver and fibrosis.  Mice exposed to Triclosan also had less diversity in their gut microbiomes (less gut microbiome diversity as science has now shown, is generally associated with poorer health).
