Almost all women use some form of feminine care product – from tampons to sprays – but how toxic are these products?
Surprisingly, according to the Missoula-based Women’s Voices for the Earth, there have been few studies of their toxicity – until now. The group has just released their report, titled “Chem Fatale”, of the potential health effects of toxic chemicals in feminine care products. The report found that few of these products have been tested for their safety and that many contain some level of toxic chemicals.
