12 Warning Signs That You Are Dealing With A Person Who Is Evil

Doctors Say To Stop Using Toiler Paper


If you’re a movie buff than you may know the quote “When you got to go, you got to go.” If you’re not, it’s a scene from Jurassic Park where one of the characters runs to the washroom. Staying with this topic, when you go to the bathroom you’re not giving it much thought. You’re there to do your business, reach for the toilet paper and then leave.

But what if there was more to it? What if there was something you needed to know but were never aware of? Well it just so happens there are doctors who say that people should no longer be using toilet paper.

What could the reason be? Read on to find out why.

For centuries mankind has been using toilet paper as a means of cleanse. But women’s health expert and MD, Jennifer Wider, explains that after releasing your stool, you might be at risk of a urinary infection.

She points out that the use of toilet paper may not allow an individual to clean up properly. For women, those stool particles that are left behind can travel to a woman’s vaginal opening and into her urethra, causing an infection.

Aside from contracting an infection, have you ever wondered why your toilet paper is white? If it is made from wood, shouldn’t it be brown?

Paper industries use chlorine and chlorine dioxide to bleach the toilet paper. This process can create cancer-causing chemicals such as dioxins and furans, which are everywhere.

Research has shown that even low levels of exposure have been linked to health problems such as hormone imbalance, reduced fertility and even cancer. The reason these health issues occur is because our bodies do not have the ability to exert dioxins, so over time they just accumulate.

In addition, the reason toilet paper can cause a hormonal imbalance is because it contains the dangerous chemical Bisphenol A (BPA). In 2012 a study was conducted which concluded that the concentrations of BPA are extremely high in paper products.

What you also may not know is that the toilet paper also contains Formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is used to improve the wet-strength of paper and paper products. According to the National Toxicology Program, formaldehyde is classified as a known carcinogen.

The good news is there are always reputable solutions. For example, if you have grown fond to toilet paper, purchase natural, unbleached products. Or you can also use wet wipes; they are more efficient and less of a strain when used.
