Co-Directors, The Hippocrates Health Institute
The clothes you wear may shorten your life and impact your health.
Did you know that:
Wearing a bra, especially a tight one, can increase your chance of developing breast cancer. Synthetic fibers are such a burn hazard that the U.S. military prohibits troops from wearing them off base. Man-made fibers in sportswear can reduce an athlete’s competitive edge. Close-fitting synthetic underwear can contribute to infertility in men. Adequate testing has not been done to determine whether fabric additives, such as insecticides and metals, can safely be in constant contact with human skin.
Man-made clothing fibers, such as nylon, spandex, and Teflon, have only replaced cotton, wool, and silk over the last sixty years. During this time there’s been a significant increase in health problems that may be associated with wearing synthetic garments: Fertility problems, respiratory disease, contact dermatitis, and cancer.
Killer Clothes reveals the many ways that synthetic clothing, chemicals added to garments, and tight clothing and tight shoes create dangerous problems for human health. Dr. Anna Maria Clement and her husband Dr. Brian Clement, co-directors of The Hippocrates Health Institute, document the rise in health problems that has paralleled the increase use of synthetic clothing fibers. They intend to create a wider awareness of the many medical studies—which the media has mostly ignored—showing the harmful consequences to health of wearing synthetic clothing.
Learn: What fabrics and chemicals to watch for when selecting clothing. How to identify deceptive synthetic fabrics, why to avoid any garment that is advertised as being antishrink, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antistatic, antiodor, antiflame, antiwrinkle, or antistain. The advantages for choosing natural fibers. Tips for ecological and health-friendly cleaning.
