Tide Detergent Found To Contain High Levels Of 1,4-Dioxane, Carcinogenic Contaminant


Lab scientists have discovered that certain detergents like tide may contain things that humans should avoid contact with. A petrochemical solvent found in paints, varnishes, and some cosmetics has been found in tide. The problem with this is that it seeps into our clothes and every day we are breathing in these harmful chemicals. This long term exposure is not good for human health. These chemicals, if exposed over long periods of time, can lead to cancer and other illnesses. Some companies are putting efficiency over the health of humans. Tide believes that this is not an immediate problem however their alternative chemicals do not work as well they said. Therefore, they stick with the bad chemicals in order to earn a profit.
