what’s really in your tampon… from pesticides to glue that could ‘leach into your vagina’ - water absorbent materials
If we eat the same thing five to seven days a month, we may start to question what's inside --
If it's good for us
However, when it comes to tampon, most of us don't even think twice about using them.
The vagina is the most easily absorbed part of the body, which means that it is possible for these ingredients to enter the blood.
Since women use about 12,000 tampons on average throughout their lives, it may be worthwhile to know what is included.
Most of the traditional tampons are made of synthetic super-blended
Dr Alex Eskander, a gynecologist at the gynecology center, said: "sanitary cotton is usually made up of absorbent packed cotton and other ingredients to keep them sterile and safe to use.
Most tampons are completely safe, he stressed, and the main risk is that bacteria enter the body.
This could lead to potential life.
Threats, but also very rare cases such as poisoning shock syndrome (TSS).
Dr. Eskander continued: "In general, the use of tampon by leading manufacturers, in addition to the possibility of transferring bacteria from the outside, or not enough to replace tampon regularly, does not pose a concern about health, this may increase the chances of bacterial vaginal disease and TSS.
"However, some women may find that they are allergic to some artificial materials, which may cause irritation, so they may want to use other methods.
"While most tampons are safe, according to a 2014 environmental health report, scientists have found that some synthetic fibers may remain in the vagina, which may be harmful.
Dr. Philip tilno, professor of clinical microbiology and pathology at New York University, said: "Synthetic fibers are easier to absorb than cotton.
"They concentrate menstrual protein more than cotton and provide an incredible and perfect physics-
Chemical environment for toxin production.
"Chlorine Urals cotton is not completely white, so some sanitary cotton is bleached by chlorine to achieve the appearance of Pearl White.
Bleaching is a technical term for fiber purification and a necessary condition for removing impurities and cleaning fibers.
But according to the report of the environmental committee 2018, chlorine can be broken down into dioxin-the most durable and toxic chemical.
RayonA tampon itself is made of artificial silka man-
Fabric made of cotton, pulp and other synthetic fibers.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, artificial silk raw materials are produced using elemental chlorine
Top scientists at Harvard, Dartmouth, Wisconsin, Minnesota and American universitiesS.
According to Tampax, the Centers for Disease Control have conducted extensive tests confirming that artificial silk and cotton are equally safe.
Most tampons are made from non-
Organic cotton may be sprayed with pesticides.
Last year, the French Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety Agency (ANSES)
Traces of banned pesticides were found in women's health products, including lindane and cutojin.
Sometimes, in order to make the product smell better, or as a sum in the smell, the aroma component is introduced.
But to produce a fragrance, a mixture of chemicals is needed.
A lot of them are the same as those used in other women's products, but for some, they can be harmful.
Some tampon comes with applicator, others are wrapped in a single plastic case.
Before you use the fiber, it prevents the fiber from falling off in the package.
But these are usually made of polyester, polypropylene or polyethylene.
The same compound used to make plastic bags.
Glue strings used to remove cotton strips sometimes attach to cotton strips using adhesive.
In some weaving designs, polyester or polypropylene weaving can be used. Celia Pool, co-
The founder of organic tampon brand DAME said: "If we put these products in our mouths, we would want to know what's inside them.
"If you put it in the vagina, why is it so different?
"Women should give full transparency to what is inside them.
