Hygiene products are taken in North and South America, Western Europe and African countries.

Scientists from the University of Florida in the US studied 21 brands of toilet paper and concluded that perfluorinated chemical compounds, also called “eternal chemicals”, are found in all products. They are dangerous to human health and the environment in general. The Guardian writes about it.

Experts emphasize that “eternal chemicals” are toxic and almost non-biodegradable. Therefore, they are a significant source of water pollution.

In particular, in wastewater treatment plants, chemicals can end up in sludge, which is then spread over arable land as fertilizer or discharged into natural waters.

“Toilet paper should be considered as a potential major source of PFAS entering wastewater treatment systems,” the experts said.

According to them, “eternal chemicals” are about 14 thousand artificially synthesized substances, including Teflon.

Such elements are used to make products that are resistant to water, stains and heat. In addition, they are used for dyeing clothes, food packaging, cosmetics and coatings for kitchen utensils.

It was noted that “eternal chemicals” are associated with the development of cancer, complications in the fetus during pregnancy, liver and kidney diseases, autoimmune disorders and other serious problems in the human body.

Remember, the court in the city of Sydney, Australia found two women guilty of a fight in a public place. Women fight over toilet paper in a supermarket while shopping during the coronavirus lockdown.
