The two most common of these are triclosan, typically used in liquid antibacterial soaps, and triclocarban, used in bar soaps.

But that's not the only bombshell the FDA dropped! Apparently, antibacterial products are no more effective than conventional soap and water in preventing illnesses — and might even pose health risks!

FDA Approves In-Home HIV Test!

Filed under: HealthScience!



This is seriously ahmayzing!

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved OraQuick, an in-home HIV test!

It works by taking an oral fluid sample by swabbing the upper and lower gums inside the mouth and can provide results in 20 to 40 minutes.

That's so great. People will no longer have to wait and sweat it out for like two weeks while waiting to hear back from a doctor.

The agency said that even if someone gets a positive result, that doesn't mean they 100% have HIV, but that they should get some additional testing done in a medical setting to confirm the test.

This is such a great step forward in the global fight against AIDS.
