Tampons, including “organic” brands, found to contain toxic PFAS (fluorine) chemicals – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD

A new report from the group Mamavation reveals that many popular tampon brands, including a few organic brands, are reportedly contaminated with detectable levels of fluorine in the form of PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances).

In partnership with EHN.org, Mamavation tested 23 different tampon products in a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-certified lab, five of which tested positive for PFAS at levels ranging from 19 parts per million (ppm) to 28 ppm.
