Now a new study done in zebrafish suggests triclosan also messes with our gut—interfering with the community of bacteria that makes up our microbiome. In the new study, published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers at Oregon State University exposed 45 adult zebrafish to either normal food or food with triclosan for up to seven days. After that, the researchers analyzed the microbiomes of the fish and found that exposure was linked to significant shifts in the diversity and structure of the fish’s microbiome.
