WHAT WOMEN SHOULD KNOW
BEFORE BUYING TAMPONS

FACTS: WHAT WOMEN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TAMPONS

DIOXIN and CHLORINE

RAYON

TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME (TSS)

TAMPON APPLICATORS "HIDDEN" RISKS (More research - please!)

  • Women need MORE information about the safe use of tampons. An example: never use tampons when water-skiing; they can be forced deep inside your body and need to be surgically removed!
  • The safety of some "other" ingredients in tampons have not been proven.
  • Many women have reported allergic reactions to commercial tampons, and find that the reaction "disappears when they use non-chlorine, pure cotton tampons.
  • Tampon use is also known to promote yeast infections; some women get them every month after their period!
  • Tampons are believed to cause cervical dysplasia (aka "pre-cancerous" cells), cervical, ovarian and bladder cancers, to erode cervical tissue, and to aggravate "genital warts.
  • Using chlorine to make rayon for tampons is irresponsible and unnecessary. European companies in countries like Sweden, after being forced by law, have been making non-chlorine rayon for years.
  • Companies that sell cotton tampons are still making rayon tampons, and knowingly risking women's lives. Don't buy from them!
  • You may have seen tampon advertising that encourages OVERNIGHT USE of tampons ("up to 8 hours"). Many younger women donąt know about the 1980s tampon scare and may sleep with tampons in even longer. What's worse, is that if you're asleep, you may not notice the symptoms of Toxic Shock and have a chance to take the tampon out before the disease gets worse!
