    Typical laundry detergent has quite a few harmful chemicals.  Here is a few: Linear alkyl sodium sulfates (LAS) are chemicals found within laundry detergents that release carcinogens during production and also biodegrade very slowly.  Petroleum distillates are found in laundry detergents and are linked to cancer, lung damage, and lung inflimation.  Phosphates are also used in laundry detergents that when released into water systems can seriously disrupt aquatic habitats.  Various other harmful chemicals exist, but these are among the worst.
