WHAT WOMEN SHOULD KNOW
BEFORE BUYING TAMPONS

Recently, women have begun to hear more and more about the link between dioxins in tampons and diseases like endometriosis and cervical cancer. Last year, Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY-14) sponsored the "Women's Health and Dioxin Act of 1996"< in the House of Representatives. The Bill requires the National Institute of Health to "Provide research to determine the extent to which the presence of dioxin in tampons poses any health risks to women," specifically "including risks relating to cervical cancer."

Due to the risks now believed to be associated with many of the ingredients in traditional tampons, there are many alternative female hygiene products springing up that are more natural and considered to be safer for women and better for the environment.

The following is a list of ingredients in tampons and the health concerns associated with each.
