LOS TAMPONES SON TÓXICOS

 

[easy-image-collage id=1518]

Queridas amigas, hoy quiero hablaros de un tema que me ha llamado muchísimo la atención a la vez que me ha producido dejado bastante preocupada. Por lo visto nos tienen engañadas, o no nos cuentan toda la verdad sobre los tampones comunes que utilizamos cada mes cuando llega nuestra menstruación, y es que estamos equivocadamente acostumbradas a seguir lo que hace la mayor parte de la sociedad sin ser eso lo más adecuado en multitud de ocasiones, pues bien, esta podría ser una de esas ocasiones.

Resulta ser que los tampones a los que todas tenemos acceso, no tienen toda la información que deberían en su etiquetado, y es que por ley no están obligados a recoger algunos de sus componentes tóxicos que en realidad poseen. He estado rebuscando por Internet y, a parte de encontrar mucho artículo magufo que dice que los tampones son Satán, he encontrado algunos estudios serios con argumentos probados que recomiendan evitar o minimizar el consumo de estos dispositivos y proponer algunas alternativas mas saludables. Hoy quiero hablaros un poco de ellos para mantener vivo vuestro sentido crítico y abrir debate. Y vosotras, ¿sois pro o anti?

COMPONENTES TÓXICOS:

 

1. DIOXINAS:

Las dioxinas son compuestos químicos que se producen a partir de procesos de combustión que implican al cloro. Pensareis: “¿Los tampones llevan cloro?”. La respuesta es clara, NO, pero este elemento químico es el principal agente usado en los procesos de blanqueamiento de las fibras que se usan para fabricar los tampones, y es que la celulosa y el algodón no son blancos inmaculados, tienen, de manera natural, un tono entre amarillo y marrón.

La dioxina es, por tanto, un residuo del proceso de blanqueamiento de las fibras. Este subproducto está considerado puro veneno, incluso en cantidades ínfimas, y son numerosos los estudios que respaldan esta afirmación. Pues bien, cuando el tampón entra en contacto con nuestra mucosa se produce un proceso de intercambio inevitable, y aunque sea ínfima la cantidad, la dioxina tiende a acumularse en nuestro tejido adiposo. 

Numerosos estudios avalan  que la exposición a las dioxinas tiene efectos muy nocivos sobre la salud, son un claro agente cancerígeno, genera problemas hormonales que afectan al sistema reproductivo, al correcto desarrollo del feto, al proceso de gestación y a nuestro sistema inmunitario, como veis, todo un rosario de bondades.

La pregunta clave es, ¿cómo de expuestas estamos a las dioxinas si usamos tampones de manera regular? ¿Vale la pena correr el riesgo?

 

2. ASBESTOS: Otro gran hoax que rueda por Internet afirma que centros de investigación de mucho prestigio, como el departamento de Biología molecular de Illinois (EE.UU.) han encontrado de forma regular trazas de asbestos en los tampones convencionales. Los asbestos son sustancias de origen mineral con usos tan diversos en la industria debido a su enorme capacidad como el aislante térmico. Su uso está super regulado ya que se ha demostrado que es un poderoso agente cancerígeno, y seguro que os suena más si usamos su otro nombre: amianto.

Pues bien, corre el rumor de que los fabricantes de tampones lo usan como agente para aumentar las hemorragias y de esta manera vender más pues su clientela sangra más. La industria, obviamente, niega la mayor, y la verdad es que son tan sonados los casos de riesgo para la salud y está tan protocolizado el uso y la retirada del amianto que resulta un tanto inverosímil, pero a mi me ha metido el miedo en el coco.

3. PESTICIDAS, INSECTICIDAS Y HERBICIDAS

Recordemos que el algodón es un producto agrícola, y durante su cultivo se usan herbicidas y pesticidas para garantizar y optimizar la producción y maximizar los beneficios.

A pesar de los numerosos procesos de limpieza y depuración, una parte de estos productos químicos quedan en el algodón. A priori no resultan peligrosos ya que la piel nos protege de los posibles riesgos, (no hace falta que te pongas a tirar tu colección de camisetas por la ventana) pero en cuanto a los tampones, el tema no está tan claro.

Como ya hemos comentado antes, estos dispositivos están en contacto directo con nuestra mucosa vaginal durante muchas horas al día mientras dura nuestro periodo. El riesgo de que estas sustancias pasen a nuestro torrente sanguíneo es mucho mayor y, al igual que las dioxinas, estas sustancias tienden a acumularse en nuestro cuerpo, y que quieres que te diga, no me hace mucha gracia el tema.

4. FIBRAS SINTÉTICAS:

Los tampones contienen fibras sintéticas que junto al algodón y la humedad crean un entorno fabuloso para el crecimiento de bacterias. Resulta especialmente peligrosa la “Staphylococcus aureus”, asociada, entre otras cosas, al síndrome tóxico y a la muerte por shock. Ojo, siempre y cuando hagamos un uso responsable de  los tampones el riesgo es mínimo. Es MUY IMPONTANTE cambiarlo cada 3-4 horas.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-south-east-wales-24978755

5. RAYÓN:

 Los tampones contienen también rayón, más conocido como viscosa. Este derivado industrial de la celulosa es muy apreciado debido a su tacto, muy similar a la seda y a su gran poder absorbente. La viscosa fue la primera fibra artificial procesada y, a parte de lo contaminante que resulta su fabricación, es un potente modificador del pH natural de nuestra mucosa.

Pero, ¿en que me afecta esto? Las mucosas de nuestro cuerpo son entornos delicados. Para protegerla, nuestro cuerpo modifica la acidez (o pH) para generar un entorno que dificulte la reproducción bacteriana. El rayón o viscosa modifica el pH y esto eleva el riesgo de infecciones y complicaciones.

SOLUCIONES PRESCINDIR DE LOS TAMPONES:

¿Qué hacer entonces? ¿Nos fiamos o no nos fiamos de la industria más íntima? ¿Son los tampones un invento del diablo? La decisión es vuestra a mi personalmente me parece que el mercado ofrece alternativas suficientes como para no jugarnos nuestra salud, para ayudar al medio ambiente o para evitarnos un gasto regular. Estas son algunas de las alternativas.

LA COPA MENSTRUAL:

La copa menstrual, un recipiente de silicona médica que se introduce en el interior de la vagina (igual que un tampón) durante la menstruación, adaptándose a las paredes vaginales en todo momento, independientemente del movimiento que hagamos. Se utiliza diariamente durante todo el ciclo, día y noche. Una vez que tu periodo ha finalizado tan solo tienes que lavarla y esteriliza con agua hirviendo y la guardas para el mes que viene.
Estas son, para mí, las 3 grandes ventajas:

  • La copa recoge todo el flujo en su interior y la puedes llevar la copa hasta 12 horas.
  • Tiene un uso ilimitado, ya que la puedes quitar y poner tantas veces como quieras.
  • Cuidaremos el medio ambiente ya que, a diferencia de los tampones, la puedes reusar durante años.

Lo más importante, si te decides por adquirir una copa, es saber la talla que llevas. Lo más normal es que si no has tenido partos sea la pequeña y que, si has tenido partos naturales, utilices una talla mayor. ya se que soy un pesada pero recuerda que, antes de usarla, es muy importante que la esterilices. Personalmente, para mi ha sido todo un descubrimiento 😉

Y si queréis acabar de flipar, mirad si este tema anda avanzado que ya existen hasta aplicadores MIRAD:

¡AH! Y ADIÓS A QUE SE NOS VEA EL HILILLO DEL TAMPON, esto serrrr muuuuuuuy importante!

Por cierto, yo me he comprado esta;)

TAMPONES ECO:

Otra opción interesante y que debemos tener en cuenta es es el tampón ecológico, es decir que durante su proceso de producción se ha usado algodón ecológico. Los puedes encontrar en herbolarios y en tiendas BIO – ECO. La única pega es que es un producto caro. De todos modos me he puesto manos a la obra y os he buscado algunos links que pueden resultar de vuestro interés.
