What's in that tampon you're using?
What You Don't Know Could Hurt You!
Tampons, Dioxin, and Endometriosis
Click here to see the data of the Playtex tampons I had tested for dioxin.
If you don't know what a tampon is then check out Wikipedia's definition.
So you've heard the news that your tampons, pads, and diapers may contain dioxin, and your wondering "so where can I get alternatives that are safe?" Well, I have compiled a list that will help you in finding the alternative that best suits you. Be aware that I do not sell these products, nor am I affiliated with any sites that do. I would also like to clarify that I am not the person responsible for the asbestos in tampons e-mail hoax. I believe that may have started by a college student in Colorado. But I did contribute to helping clear up the rumor, by supplying info to David Emery of Urban Legends and Folklore http://urbanlegends.miningco.com.
I have been accused by some people of creating fear and powerlessness by my website. I believe that fear is a basic and instinctive survival technique. You all have a choice. You can feel powerless, or you can get involved and do something about it. You can blindly take the word of the manufacturers or you can question the validity of their information. I had nothing to gain or lose when I decided to make this website. The manufacturers on the other hand have much to lose. Especially if it is proven that they have known about these dangers all along. To sum it up: asbestos in tampons is a hoax. Dioxin in tampons is not.
