28 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, February 7, 1973 Deodorant soaps said "not safe' WASHINGTON (AO - The panel that recommended the virtual ban on hexachlorophene in over-the-counter products now says that existing evidence does not show chemical substitutes of hexachlorophene to be safe in deodorant toilet soaps. "All of these chemicals are absorbed ... in measureable or significant amounts and all of them at some level produce damage to internal organs," said the panel of doctors appointed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). "The amount that could be used safely for a lifetime has not been established." The panel has yet to furnish the FDA with its final report, and soap makers say they are confident they can demonstrate the safety of their products before the panel finishes its deliberations. The panel's judgment in September that use of hexachlorophene should be severely restricted was followed within days by the FDA ban. In the case of the remaining term killers, the agency is waiting for the panel's final report which could be ready in a few weeks or a few months, an FDA spokesman said. (STILL SAFER The spokesman said the agency does not consider any danger posed by substitutes for hexachlorophene to be the same as those from hexachlorophene itself. Nearly 40 French infants died from talcum powder which contained accidentally-high levels of hexachlorophene. U.S. studies had tied the chemical to brain damage in premature infants. The specific substances which the panel described as "not generally regarded as safe for incorporation into toilet bars for personal hygiene use" are known as TBS, TCC, TFC, triclosan and Vancide FP. The list covered every germ killer listed by the industry as used in the best-selling deodorant soaps. Testing on TBS caused con- cern in the industry and the panel earlier. Procter and Gamble eliminated it from its soaps. TBS is still present in Irish Spring, Lifebuoy, Phase III and Sweetheart Deodorant soap, according to the manufao turers. Slaps which do not contain TBS but which contain other germ killers mentioned by the FDA panel are Safeguard, Dial, Zest and Palmolive Plus. Safeguard, Dial and Lifebuoy disclose the presence of the germ killers on their labels. The others do not.

Leonard Masse, who headed the street operations," said the RCMP believe they have crippled the heroin trade on the street in Montreal for the time being. "We are convinced all the top traffickers have been picked up," he said. "It will take a long time for organizers behind the street sales to regroup and start over again." The arrests occurred over a 24-hour period beginning Monday night. Those arrested ranged in age from 19 to 35 years and included five women. Charges were to be laid today. The arrests were made In homes and streets in the centre-town area and in discotheques and coffee houses in other areas. Police said those arrested included a man considered the top heroin pusher in the city, picked up while selling an ounce of heroin to an addict for $2,000. SUPPLIES CUT OFF Police believe the arrests cut off normal supply channels to between 400 and 500 addicts. Inspector Phil Mantha, official RCMP spokesman here, said two fluently bilingual young RCMP constables grew long hair and beards and began living among known addicts last May. He said they were nearly exposed several times. At least twice, addicts brought their suspicions about the two agents to the attention of pushers. Police said that despite the crippling effect on street sales they have not yet reached major suppliers who import the drug from France.
