Toxic Clothing?

Some of you may have read my blog entry about tampons and dioxins which struck up a conversation with one of my friends : what about rayon in clothes?

So, while I began my research I decided to do something different.  Rather than write a blog about rayon and the possible exposure to chemicals and dioxin, I decided to just share the links with you.  There are many!

If you’re worried about over-exposure to chemicals, toxins, or dioxins with your food and household products, what about your clothing?  It’s on you all day, and up against your skin – soaking in all things!!

Is there merit behind these articles?  That’s your question to answer…Happy reading!
