Today's tampons and pads are the one of the most deadliest and the most relied on products that females are using today. Manufacturers of feminine products are not obligated to share their cancerous ingredients and are still approved by the FDA to be sold in stores. Population control?
Junkyard Fitness is obligated to spreading the awareness of toxicity that are in the foods and products that we use.
In 2020, let's adore "Her" by not only saving the lives of young girls starting their menstrual cycles, but let's also make female reproduction healthy and fertile again.
Did you know? Your about to find out...
Conventional tampons contain pesticides! Did you know that a whopping $2 billion is spent annually on pesticides to spray cotton crops?
Studies have shown that the chemicals dioxin and chlorine are cancerous when they come in contact with the human skin and more especially the tender part at the woman’s genitals. Obviously not immediately, but the cancerous effects may be cumulative. Because paper cannot absorb the woman’s flow during her cycle, a plastic paper is placed in between or under the pad for fear of leakage when a woman is bleeding. This plastic placed in between the pad prevents circulation of air in the woman’s system. In other words, as the woman is having her flow wearing a traditional pad, no air enters the woman’s system and because of this, warmth develops between the pad and her vaginal area, with the moisture from the blood this area becomes a breeding ground for germs, fermentation takes place; hence, the reason the pads may have unpleasant scent when removed after use.
Tampons and pads with odor neutralizers and artificial fragrances are virtually a chemical soup, laced with artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene and propylene glycol (PEG), contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness and infertility.
Investigations have since proved that most menstrual sanitary pads available on the market are produced from recycled paper materials containing print ink and other chemicals which are later bleached with harmful chemicals like dioxin and chlorine.
A World Health Organization report indicates that within two hours of a woman putting on traditional pads, about 107 different germs develop per cubic centimeter on the surface area of the pad. When pressure is applied on the pad through sitting, because paper is not absorbent enough, the pad allows a “back flow” of the blood into the woman’s reproductive system with all the germs that may have developed and the chemicals mixed with the blood possibly causing infection to the woman’s reproductive system. Not knowing what to do nor what may be happening, the woman simply takes this as normal menstrual discomfort.
Some of today’s most popular sanitary napkins have been found to emit chemicals, like polystyrene, chloro-ethane and chloroform. The World Health Organization classifies polystyrene as a carcinogen. And the EPA says short-term exposure to high concentrations of chloro-methane can have neurological effects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says high levels of exposure to chloro-ethane can result in lack of muscle coordination and unconsciousness.
