Did you have any idea that just by changing your underwear you could change the world! Let me explain...
Reasons to Change Your Underwear for Your Health:
In their book Killer Clothes Drs. Brian and Anna Maria Clement compile shocking research and disturbing information about our clothing. They show the correlation between the increase in synthetic human-made fabrics, that began in the late 1930's, and the rapid increase in serious health issues, such as cancers and infertility. They uncover how most of our clothing is made with highly toxic chemicals that wreak havoc on our bodies and are jeopardizing our health. Not only do these synthetic fabrics suffocate our bodies preventing the skin from releasing nasty toxins, we actually then force it to absorb a nasty concoction of chemicals as well! Clothing used to be about keeping us warm and perhaps an expression of fashion, but now, despite how trendy we have become, we wrap ourselves in a cloak of toxicity and our bodies have become a dumping ground. As Dr. Anna Maria explains in Killer Clothes, "Human-made petrochemical fibers restrict and suffocate the skin...Most people don't realize that our skin is our body's most eliminative organ...we release a pound of toxins every day through our skin...If we hold back any percentage of these toxins from being released, they accumulate in the body fat and body organs to become like a time bomb, primed to detonate as some future health malady."
So if you still have those sexy, synthetic little numbers get rid of them and trade them in for a pair of organic ones. Don't just switch to cotton because cotton is responsible for about 25% of all pesticide use in the world! So don't trade in your synthetic intimates for a heavy dose of round-up ready cotton ones!
