Toxins in your Name-Brand Clothing

It comes as no real surprise that somewhere, someone, decided things that further depricate our health and well being.

An although I am not a huge fan of Greenpeace and the way they do business; I have to applaud them for keeping watch for our safety in this matter.

Samples of clothing from top brands including Adidas, Uniqlo, Calvin Klein, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lacoste, Converse and Ralph Lauren were found to be tainted with the chemicals, known as nonylphenol ethoxylates... nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), commonly used as detergents in industries including the production of natural and synthetic textiles, were detected in two-thirds of the samples the group tested. “NPEs break down to form nonylphenol, which has toxic, persistent and hormone-disrupting properties,” Li told journalists in Beijing.

“It mimics female hormones, alters sexual development and affects reproductive systems.”

Here is the run down on those companies affected:
