Date:7/14/2014

Missoula, MT (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

New research and analysis from the national women's health organization Women's Voices for the Earth examines toxic ingredients in tampons, a product used by the vast majority of women nationwide, including specific chemicals that may be found in the product’s absorptive materials, as well as additives and fragrances that may put women’s health at risk.

According to WVE’s director of science and research, Alexandra Scranton, the potential impact of toxic chemical exposure from tampons on health is significant because they are used internally, in direct contact to some of the most sensitive and absorptive skin on a woman's body.

“Despite the widespread use of tampons by numerous women, relatively little research has been conducted to assess the health impacts of chemical exposure from these products,” Scranton said.

Vaginal tissue is lined with permeable mucous membranes, which protect the body from bacteria, but which can also easily absorb or be irritated by other chemicals, Scranton said, adding that vaginal tissues are filled with blood vessels and thus are a direct route for chemicals to be absorbed into the bloodstream. She cited a study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology that showed that hormone chemicals, like estrogen, are absorbed vaginally at 10-8
