One research that was conducted in Germany has discovered that people who are wearing clogs, which are made from plastic materials, can be at risk of developing some types of cancer.
That is because these clogs contain a lot of carcinogenic compounds which can lead to terrible consequences.
Many scientists were determined to prove this research. For their research they selected ten pairs of clogs that were made from plastic materials, and it is important to say that they chose the best brands on the market.
When they received the results from the laboratory analysis, they were shocked. They proved that these types of sandals contain 60% of PAHs which is also known as aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons.
You probably have not heard of this, but the aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons are very carcinogenic substances. That means that they can cause cell mutation if they are absorbed by the body.
They can penetrate into the skin and enter the body when they are inhaled. Therefore, they are extremely harmful for the body and overall health.
Based on the research, this type of carcinogen was found in the highest amounts in the black clogs.
Solvents and heavy metals were found in approximately 70% of the examined clogs.
These toxic compounds can enter the body through the skin. If you want to prevent the unwanted consequences, you should wear socks.
The interesting fact is that the original Crocs did not contain PAHs. However, they are still harmful because they contained four solvents which can cause allergies.
