ANNOUNCEMENT: WVE Publishes First-Ever Peer-Reviewed Article!
We are so excited to announce our first-ever published peer-reviewed article! In collaboration with researchers from George Mason School of Public Health and Columbia University, WVE’s Director of Science and Research, Alexandra Scranton, co-authored a paper titled “Chemicals in Menstrual Products: A Systemic Review”.
There is a growing body of literature detecting toxic chemicals in menstrual products. We still don’t know exactly what this means for our health but are concerned that some serious exposures can be happening. This peer-reviewed publication holds much of the data all in one place by compiling publicly available data and testing. The paper is an important addition to the scientific research highlighting the concerns about chemicals in menstrual products and their potential impact on our health. We know that chemicals in menstrual products are an issue and WVE has been on the case for many years. Although the issue doesn’t get the attention that it deserves, we are committed to bridging the scientific community with the research we need to keep our communities informed and safe from harmful chemicals.
The peer review was published by BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
