  • We all know hand sanitizer is bad for you.


  • But a new study finds it can actually increase the amount of BPA in your system! Yet another reason to stop using it altogether!


  • Hey guys, Tara here for Dnews - and there's been a lot of talk over the past few years about hand sanitizer, and why it can actually be dangerous for you.

    嘿,大家好,這裡是 Dnews 的 Tara,近幾年出現了許多有關乾洗手液,以及它可能對你有害的討論。

  • Dnews actually did an episode on it just last year.

    Dnew 在去年還為此製作了一集節目。

  • The basic idea is that triclosan, the active ingredient in hand sanitizer, kills off all of your good bacteria, making it easier for antibiotic resistant strains to flourish.


  • But that's not the only reason it's bad. A new study published this week in PLOS One, finds that using hand sanitizer can also increase your skin's absorption of BPA.

    但它有害的原因不僅是如此。在這星期 PLOS One 上的一篇新研究,發現使用乾洗手液會增加你的皮膚吸收 BPA 的量。

  • BPA stands for Bisphenol A, and it's a chemical used in the production of almost all hard plastics, including containers used for most foods and beverages.

    BPA 就是酚甲烷,這種化學物質在幾乎所有種類的硬質塑膠中都有使用,包括大多數盛裝食物或飲料的容器。

  • Essentially, it imitates our hormones, in a way that disrupts our body's natural endocrine system.


  • Studies have linked high amounts of BPA to hormone disorders, heart disease, cancer, infertility, and even diabetes.

    研究顯示高濃度的 BPA 與荷爾蒙失調、心臟病、癌症、不孕以及糖尿病有關。

  • In a nutshell, it's bad. And according to this new study, hand sanitizer makes it even worse.


  • Most commonly used hand sanitizers contain chemicals that enhance the penetration of lipophilic compounds into your skin.


  • BPA is one of those compounds.

    BPA 也是這些親脂性化合物之一。

  • So researchers from the University of Missouri looked specifically at thermal receipt paper, which contains very high quantities of BPA to see if hand sanitizer increased the absorption of those chemicals.

    因此, 密蘇里大學的研究者特別研究熱感應紙,這種紙常用作收據,且含有高量的 BPA,來研究乾洗手液是否會增加皮膚吸收熱感應紙上的化學物質。

  • Turns out, it does. A lot.


  • They found that using hand sanitizer before touching receipt paper, increases the absorption of BPA up to 100 fold.

    他們發現在碰觸收據前使用乾洗手液的話,會提升 BPA 的吸收量一百倍。

  • What's more, is that all of that extra BPA lingers on your hands.

    但還不只如此,你的手上仍然沾有許多 BPA。

  • So if you were to eat food directly afterwards, you'd be getting a double dose of BPA absorption - first from your hands, and then from your mouth.

    因此如果你接著用手拿東西吃,你就會吸收到雙倍劑量的 BPA (先是從手的皮膚,然後從嘴進入體內)。

  • And those specific levels of BPA have been proven to increase the risk of disease in adults, and developmental abnormalities in children.

    而特定劑量以上的 BPA 已經被證實會增加成人患病風險,並且造成兒童發育異常。

  • So what can we do about this?


  • Well, unfortunately, no safe alternatives to BPA have been identified for use in thermal paper.

    很不幸地,在製作這些熱感應紙時,我們仍沒有可以代替 BPA 的選項。

  • So until those technologies are developed, the best thing you can really do is just stop using hand sanitizer unless you really, really need it.


  • And definitely don't use it before ordering take-out food because that's not good.


  • What do you guys think? Have you sworn off hand sanitizer altogether?

    那麼大家覺得如何呢? 你們會乾脆完全不用乾洗手液嗎?

  • Let us know how you feel in the comments below - and as always, thank you guys for watching!

    請在下方回應好讓我們知道你的想法。 最後,如同以往,感謝你們的收看!

We all know hand sanitizer is bad for you.
