Email Image Happy Saturday, Polyester is one of the most popular synthetic fibers used in many industries. Much information has surfaced recently regarding polyester (and many other petroleum-based products) being directly related to infertility and being a severe hormone disruptor, especially if you exercise and are less sedentary.Β  The main toxicity associated with polyester lies not only in and of itself but also in the production process and the use of harsh chemicals during manufacturing, for instance, petrochemicals derived from crude oil. These petrochemicals are not just toxic to the skin and our system, but they also significantly pollute our air and water supplies. Polyester is also commonly treated with certain chemicals which enhance its properties, such as stain-resistant coatings, flame retardants, wrinkle-free finishes, and more. Some of these chemicals include but are not limited to formaldehyde, phthalates, and heavy metals, which all have been directly linked to adverse health effects in humans. Formaldehyde, especially, is a known carcinogen that can cause respiratory issues and skin irritation.Β  According to a study by the National Institute of Health, wearing polyester underwear is linked to an increased risk of miscarriages. (Source) One of their studies suggests that men can use polyester undergarments as a 100% effective form of contraception. (Source) Additional studies have revealed that this can result in infertility for females and sterility and impotence for males. (Source) By the way, did you know that many Hanes and Fruit of the Loom underwear for men and women are made of over 80% polyester? Some experts have warned that polyester can be harmful and suggest keeping babies and young children away from it. (Source) Solutions...?
