    Default Tampons, Sanitary Pads & Sterile Gauze Contaminated with Glyphosate

    One hundred percent of the raw cotton and sterile cotton gauze contained glyphosate (a probably carcinogenic herbicide according to the World Health Organization) or its metabolite AMPA, according to a study by the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata, Argentina. Cotton swabs, wipes, tampons and sanitary pads were also found to contain glyphosate and AMPA.

    “85 % of all samples tested positive for glyphosate and 62 % for AMPA, which is the environmental metabolite, but in the case of cotton and sterile cotton gauze the figure was 100%,” Dr. Damian Marino of EMISA explained.He continued: “In terms of concentrations, what we saw is that in raw cotton AMPA dominates (39 PPB and 13 PPB of glyphosate), while the gauze is absent of AMPA, but contained glyphosate at 17 PPB.”
    “The result of this research is very serious, when you use cotton or gauze to heal wounds or for personal hygiene uses, thinking they are sterilized products, and the results show that they are contaminated with a probably carcinogenic substance,” leading expert Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez stated after the results were announced in Buenos Aires last week.

    I wonder whether organic counterparts exist for any of these products.

    Here's an article posted by Erin Gallagher the previous day, with even further references from La Manana, et al.
