A word of warning! Many of the clothes that we wear today are contaminated with deadly toxins…such as Nylon, wool, polyester and spandex (sport clothes thermal underwear and bathing suit) to name a few.
Much of the clothing that is manufactured is typically grown with synthetic chemicals, unless it is organic, and many of these chemicals are toxic to the human body. Also most of the cleaning agents used to wash or dry clean clothes contain deadly chemicals that can harm the human body. It has been estimated that 25% of all the pesticides on the planet is used for the cultivation of cotton…just to manufacture clothing alone they use 8000 different types of chemicals, this is according to the Ecologist magazine.
This process involves bleaching, dyeing, scouring, sizing and finishing. Synthetic clothing now commonly contain toxins such as formaldehyde (which kills brain cells), brominated flame retardants, and perfluorinated chemicals like Teflon fibres to give trousers, skirts, some suits, it’s ‘non-iron’ and ‘non-wrinkle’ durability.
May I point out that Perfluorinated compounds are classified as cancer-causing agents under U.S Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.
Did you know that the most dangerous cancer causing chemical is Dry cleaning fluid? The world government will tell you this. There are now many organic dry-cleaning shops in America that use soy instead of this deadly fluid.
All of which will enter our bodies and children’s bodies through the pores in our skin, specially when we sweat.
One in two males and one in three females will develop cancer.
Women now have a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer.
Women who wear polyester bras have a increased chance of developing breast cancer than women who didn’t wear polyester bras. The most safest bras to wear are organic cotton bras. Man-made fibre bras gives a woman a 6 times increased chance of developing breast cancer, than women that didn’t wear any bras.
A Harvard study has been proven that the odds of getting breast cancer dramatically increased with bra-wearing over 12 hours per day. Wearing bras restricts the constant circulation of blood flow, breast milk and the release of cells.
I will go into more detail next week on this topic.
Take care and have a Happy New Year 2017
