Sanitary Tampons and Pads: How Their Dioxins are Leading to the Endometriosis Epidemic

Written by Print  E-mail

Up to ten million women in the United States suffer from a painful, and sometimes sterilizing ailment known as endometriosis. It can be an immensely painful disease, with pains akin to birth pangs at every menstruation. It usually leads to infertility if allowed to continue. Endometriosis has become one of the most common health problems that women experience. The medical establishment appears to know nothing about the cause. Some doctors have desperately tried to save face by claiming the disease is "genetic"; in yet another instance of blaming the victims. According to the establishment's doctrine, your only hope of preventing endometriosis is avoiding caffeine and alcohol, whilst getting regular exercise. In actuality, these things do very little in regard to actually stopping or preventing recurrences of endometriosis.

Most women with endometriosis will never discover that their problem is greatly aggravated by sanitary napkins and tampons. These products use a semi-synthetic substance called rayon instead of real cotton; in order to achieve maximum absorption. The pads are bleached during the final stage of production. This bleaching process releases dioxins from the rayon as a byproduct. Studies have proven that repeated dioxin exposure leads to reproductive diseases, including endometriosis. Dioxins accumulate in the body's fats over time; and as they gradually build to greater concentrations, so does the list of health conditions that arise as a result.

"In the early 1990's, the Endometriosis Association found that 79% of a group of monkeys developed endometriosis after exposure to dioxin in their food during a research study over ten years earlier. The severity of endometriosis found in the monkeys was directly related to the amount of T.C.D.D. (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin -- the most toxic dioxin) to which they had been exposed. Monkeys that were fed dioxin in amounts as small as five parts per trillion developed endometriosis. In addition, the dioxin-exposed monkeys showed immune abnormalities similar to those observed in women with endometriosis."

-- The Endometriosis Association

Dioxins are known for their ability to cause cancer, reproductive harm, hormonal disturbances, and to damage to the central nervous system. Endometriosis may just be the latest ailment to add to the long list of health problems that dioxins cause. Thus, it is highly recommended that women seek all-natural "dioxin-free" options, which are available at health food stores, and some grocery stores. If dioxins are not mentioned on the package, then dioxins are present in the product.

These hormone problems are exasperated by the extreme fluoride exposure that most American women get, combined with iodine deficiencies. Another extremely aggravating factor is the consumption of products containing soybean derivatives, and soy cooking oil. The absolute worst soy product is mayonnaise, because it is "cold pasteurized" (saturated with radiation).

  • Gary Stephany  - Additional effect of treated tampons

    Sanitary napkins can also lead to candidiasis yeast infections, especially when not changed frequently. I am wondering if the dioxins may also have a causal effect for these infections.

  • Michal  - Important info

    This is a great article, but I wonder why wouldn't you give some more solutions to the readers... There are many options women can use today, like organic cotton feminine hygiene items that can be easily be found online.

    "Therefore, it is highly recommended that women seek all-natural 'dioxin-free' options, which are available at health food stores, and some grocery stores."

    I think that sums it up pretty well. There's generally no need to discuss specific brands or types.

  • Laura  - Diva Cup

    I've used a Diva Cup for 3 months now and LOVE it. No more pads, no more tampons. The only downside is that if you're in a public restroom, you must take a bottle of water with you to rinse the cup (if it needs dumping) and your hands before you wash them. Other than this, even if it overflows (rarely)...it does not leak. I've only had mine filled to the top ONCE, and that was because I had a particularily heavy period (including clots)...and I get these every month--I just happened to have an EXTREME case. Heck, even if all the days were extreme, I'd still use it. They sell different brands and even disposable kinds at drugstores.
