* An important note on the Best Life article: It contains an error introduced during editing, to the effect that the antibacterial chemicals triclosan and triclocarban promote the growth of MRSA. No such finding has ever been made. As per the original text, laboratory studies show that these antibacterials can promote the rise of drug resistance in various test organisms. Staph was not among the organisms tested.
