Subject: Pads and tampons - Important Information for women!

If you are a woman and use pads, but especially if you
use tampons, read this and pass it on to your friends.
For the men receiving this email, please forward it to
your friends, significant others, mothers & daughters,
etc.. Thanks

Check the labels of the sanitary pads or
tampons that you are going to buy the next time and
see whether you spot any of the familiar signs stated
in this email.

No wonder so many women in the world
suffer from cervical cancer and womb tumors.
Have you heard that tampon makers include asbestos in
tampons? Why would they do this? Because asbestos
makes you bleed more, if you bleed more,you're going
to need to use more.

Why isn't this against the law since asbestos is so dangerous? Because the powers that be, in all their wisdom, did not consider tampons
as being ingested, and, therefore, didn't consider
them illegal or dangerous.

This month's Essence magazine has a small article about this and they mention two manufacturers of a cotton tampon
alternative. The companies are: Organic Essentials @
1-800-765-6491 and Terra Femme @ 1-800-755-0212.
A woman getting her PhD at University of Colorado at
Boulder sent the following: "I am writing this because
women are not being informed about the dangers of
something most of us use: tampons. I am taking a class
this month and I have been learning a lot about
biology and women, including feminine hygiene.
Recently we have learned that tampons are actually
dangerous (for other reasons than TSS! ). After learning about this
in our class, most of the females wound up feeling
angry and upset with the tampon industry, and I for
one, am going to do something about it. To start, I
want to inform everyone I can, and email it the
fastest way that I know how.
Tampons contain two things that are potentially
harmful: Rayon (for absorbency), and Dioxin (a chemical
used in bleaching the
products). The tampon industry is convinced that we,
as women, need bleached, white products in order to
view the product as pure and clean.
The problem here is that the Dioxin, which is produced in this
bleaching process, can lead to very harmful problems
for a woman. Dioxin is potentially carcinogenic
(cancer-associated) and is toxic to the immune and
reproductive systems. It has also been linked to
endometriosis and lower sperm counts for men. For both
sexes, it breaks down the immune system.
Last September, the Environmental Protection Agency
EPA (reported that there really is no acceptable"
level of exposure to Dioxin given that it is
cumulative and slow to disintegrate. The real danger
comes from repeated contact. (Karen Couppert "Pulling
the Plug on the Tampon Industry"). I'd say using about
4-5 tampons a day, five days a month, for 38 years is
repeated contact", wouldn't you?
Rayon contributes to the danger of tampons and Dioxin
because it is a highly absorbent substance. Therefore,
when fibres from the tampons are left behind in the
vagina as usually occurs, it creates a breeding ground
for the Dioxin. It also stays in a lot longer than it
would with just cotton tampons. This is also the
reason why TSS (toxic shock syndrome) occurs.
Using feminine hygiene products that aren't bleached
and that are all cotton. Other feminine hygiene
products pads/napkins contain Dioxin as well, but they
are not nearly as dangerous. So, what can you do if
you can't give up using tampons? Use tampons that are
made from 100% UNBLEACHED COTTON.
Unfortunately, there are very few companies that make
these safe tampons.(You can get them in Oz - they are
called "Cottons"). They are usually only found in
health food stores. Countries all over the world
(Sweden, Germany, British Columbia, etc.) have
demanded a switch to this safer tampon, while the U.S.
has decided to keep us in the dark about it.
In 1989, activists in England mounted a campaign
against chlorine bleaching.Six weeks and 50,000
letters later, the makers of sanitary products
switched to oxygen (one of the green methods
available) (MS magazine, May/June 1995).
Tell people. Everyone. Inform them. We are being
manipulated by this industry and the government, let's
do something about it! Please write to the companies:
Tampax Tambrands); Playtex; O.B.; Kotex. All the 800
numbers are listed on the boxes. Let them know that we
demand a safe product? ALL COTTON UNBLEACHED
