Nasty Toxic Tampons

Postby Rob Lister » Fri May 01, 2015 12:23 pm

... Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) recently introduced a bill that would require the National Institutes of Health to conduct research on the long-term effects of feminine hygiene products, as well as ask the Food and Drug Administration to publish information about the ingredients in these items.

I don't know if this is a worthy cause or not. The Honorable Carolyn Maloney does her cause a disservice by creeping into the woo zone and focusing on the fact that tampons contain trace amounts of deadly horrid lethal evil dioxins. Well, dose makes the poison, for sures, and she contends that given the number of tampons stuffed over the life of a vaginia (or anus in ed's case) there may be cause for concern.

I found this interesting ...

...
Since tampons and sanitary napkins are considered medical devices by the FDA, manufacturers aren’t required to put ingredients lists on the packaging.


I did not know that. That seems backward as hell. But even so, dioxins wouldn't be listed unless they were intentionally added or the incidental content rose above some predefined limit. I'm sure tampons even contain trace amounts of plutonium, just like the air we breath.

You're right. Don't go into toxic shock on me.

Let's get a woman's take on the matter.

Gnome? What do you think?

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
