Health: Study Found Cancer-Causing Agent in Cotton Tampons

Did you know that 85% of tampons and feminine hygiene products are contaminated with a cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide? Glyphosate is a known cancer-causing chemical. The World Health Organization has classified it as “probably carcinogenic,” and many other studies clearly link it to an endocrine disruption process that leads to cancer.

Natural News reports that, “Glyphosate has even been found to promote cancer at parts per trillion concentrations, meaning that even low-level exposure from tampons might lead to deadly cancers in women. (The GMO industry says women who are concerned about GMOs are “anti-science” and too stupid to understand technology.)”

What’s scarier is that this is nothing new.

Between the late 1970s and early 1980s, some 50 American women were killed by their tampons. The FDA labeled this causation a rumor, but the truth is that “tampons made from certain non-natural fibers were found to harbor deadly bacteria and release a sufficient quantity of chemicals to kill or injure over a thousand women.”

Why aren’t women being protected from using tampons with cancer-causing agents?

The answer is simple: money.

Cancer supports a multi-billion dollar industry, so when Americans are plagued with the disease, pharmacies and health professionals make out like fat cats. This also explains why the EPA and propagandists alike have consciously withheld critical reports from women and girls who use tampons and feminine hygiene products containing glyphosate.

The research team from National University of La Plata headed by Damian Marino revealed their research findings last weekend. Note carefully that such research would never be conducted in a U.S. university because they’ve been infiltrated and bought off by Monsanto. Example: Discredited professor Kevin Folta at the University of Florida, who was caught receiving $25,000 from Monsanto after publicly lying that he had no financial ties to the herbicide company. Even though Folta has been exhaustively exposed as a liar and a violator of university ethics, the University of Florida sees nothing wrong with such deceptions.

How can women protect themselves from developing cancer found in tampons?

Stop using them! Thousands of women have replaced their use of tampons and pads with Diva Cups, which are “reusable, bell-shaped menstrual cups that are worn internally and sits low in the vaginal canal, collecting rather than absorbing your menstrual flow.” They offer 12-hour leak-free protection, eliminate odor and work for women and girls of all shapes and sizes.

If you’re not ready to break the habit of using tampons, strictly buy feminine hygiene products made from organic cotton — from companies like Seventh Generation or The Honest Company — as this is the only way to avoid inserting GMOs into your vagina.
