Nonylphenol ethoxylate, formaldehyde – are also used for preserving dead bodies – flame retardant with bromine can also be found in some Chinese clothes according to the report of Green Peace.
Many people think if this open secret in professional circles came to the fore, Chinese clothing industry would fail. Is it the secret of their cheapness, while they play with our health?
GreenPeace has published a report with the title Dirty Laundry 2 containing shocking data and lots of bizarre information.
In this report such poisonous materials were discovered, that were used during the Chinese clothing industry, and can be demonstrated in the clothes, too.
Mainly nonyphenol ethoxylate is dangerous, but formaldehyde, flatate and flame retardants with bromine can also be found in clothes from China.
First of all these materials were found in Adidas and H&M clothes, that originates from China that makes you think, right?
Well it is worth to know, that flatates are expressively highly cancerous namely carcinogene materials. Flame retardants aren’t healthy substances either, not to mention nonylphenol.
These materials contact our skin and organism through clothes. The less trouble if they cause irritation, and they often do it. Lots of people complain of Chinese acrylic clothes damage their skin. It will be blistered or eruptive, as allergic.
Nonylphenol ethoxylates – shortly NPEs – are very hazardous materials.
NPEs transform to nonylphenols. These are highly dangerous toxins with hormone-household destroying property. This toxin was proven that it simulates the female hormones and can change the sexual development and influences the reproductive system.
Some elements of NPEs have taken part widely in the feminization of European male fish. According to WWF the total disturb of hormonal process have been observed in the case of certain mammals. This toxin is very risky for the environment and human health also in low level.
It is not accidental, that usage of NPEs is totally limited in Europe, but not in China. It has also been found out, that these nonylphenol ethoxylates are washed in the other clothes during washing too. So they dirt the possible „clean” articles of clothing.
Formaldehyde is not unimportant! Generally known it is also used for preserving of dead bodies.
A great deal of Chinese clothing chain use it to deliver clothes fresh, without crease and mould to their place of destination. Their physical appearance is very important here.
Not every customer know this fact. Neither that Chinese clothing manufacturers are not demanded to write the content of clothes on the labels.
So manufacturers can market clothes worldwide without mentioning the chemicals used in the products.
Tests in New Zealand have discovered 900-times higher formaldehyde-level in Chinese export clothes than the specified safety level.
Experts strongly suggest that everybody should not use ftalats. It is originally used to make the plastic more flexible and resistant. Flatalates are connected to hormone disorders, like reduced number of sperm. It can also be found in many plastic-smelling clothes and shoes.
Perfluorized chemicals, that are used for manufacturing breathing textiles are also dangerous. It is accumulated in the organism and has cancerous effects.
The nightclothes handled with bromic flame retardant material, that is widely used for making children’s nightclothes, can cause problems, too.
Experiments made on rats show this material decreases the capacity of brain,
Chinese clothes can cause very big troubles in the generations of today. It is a constant poisoning, and we are exposed ourselves to it. It can cause plenty of unknown diseases.
Scientists think it is possible that the childhood emergent eczema, allergy and other clinical pictures are caused by the chemical clothes.
We should do something against the greedy market process, because the world becomes more and more poisoned around us.
It is frightening to think about, that such poisons can be worn directly on ourselves.
