China is one of the countries with highest clothing production.
Generally speaking, the clothing industry has increased these days, so the quality of the clothes is questionable due to the shortcuts they have.
In most of the cases, this means that your clothes might be poisoning you. But, how is that possible?
Clothes made in China, contain chemicals like nonylphenol ethoxylates and perfluorinated chemicals which are banned in the European Union and the United States. Shockingly enough, the Greenpeace has stated that many worldwide popular brands use detrimental chemicals which affect the people’s health and harm the environment as well.
Have you ever had a rash, redness, sleep disorders, or sudden headaches that you couldn’t explain? Well, the reason for these health problems could be your T-shirts, skirts, panties, or any other piece of clothing made in China. They contain synthetics, a toxic material that causes allergic reactions. So, wearing this type of clothes increases the risk of health problems like dermatitis, lung damage, breathing problems, infertility and even cancer.
Other toxic material used in the production of Chinese clothing are nylon, acetate, acrylic, triacetate, polyester, and rayon.
Dyeing is another big concern. Made-in-China clothes contain colors which are artificial toxic colors with unpleasant odor. Moreover, they are even flammable. You put your clothes on your skin, which is our largest organ. Then, your skin absorbs these toxic materials which seriously affect your health. Therefore, stay away from Chinese clothing stores which have that typical toxic smell.
Also, make sure you avoid these clothes and buy 100% cotton clothing and linen instead. These materials are naturally resistant to insects. Silk and organic wool are also reliable sources.
To be more precise, after the process of producing clothes in Asian countries is over, they are often covered with formaldehyde (an extremely irritant chemical) to prevent wrinkling during shipping. This chemical is also used in Asian textile factories for production of towels and bedding, even though it pollutes nearby waterways.
Dr. Richard Dixon of the World Wildlife Federation showed his concern about the ecology system. He added that we have to act urgently in order to prevent further environmental damage.
The unfortunate reality is that we live in a toxic world of chemically polluted air, water, and food, and now even clothing.
