    Default Facts You Didn’t Know About Tampons & Ultra-Thin Sanitary Pads

    Many women are unaware of the risks they undergo, while unceremoniously going through their monthly ritual, hoping it would be less painful this time. But what every woman often neglects and is ignorant about, is that the sanitary pads that they use have become a silent health threat over the years, like a ticking time-bomb.

    The cellulose in your super-absorbent pads can cause cervical cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women.

    There are chemicals in your pads which can cause multiple diseases and infections.

    Dioxin present in pads and tampons can cause abnormal tissue growth in the reproductive organs. Rayon, used to increase the absorbing capacity of pads, also contains dioxin.

    Sanitary napkins also contain synthetic material, which blocks wetness and temperature, leading to the growth of yeast and bacteria.

    If you don't change your pad or tampon in 4 hours, it can cause Toxic Shock Syndrome and even death.

    An overgrowth of staphylococcus aureus bacteria in the vagina leads to Toxic Shock Syndrome, which in extreme cases can lead to death.

    On an average, a woman disposes off around 16, 800 pads in a year, which is a major concern as these pads are non-biodegradable and cannot be recycled.

    One conventional pad is equal to 4 average size plastic bags. Imagine the size of a landfill filled with disposable, commercially made pads used by all the women in the country.

    So, make the right choice for your bodies and the environment, ladies! Make sure you change your pad every 4 hours.
