Even More Reasons to Utilize a Warm Water Bidet Attachment
Posted on February 12, 2015
In 2008, a common chemical found in toilet paper, Bisphenol A (BPA), made headlines due to the possible health risks associated with it. Though we still aren’t quite sure what effects the chemical has on our bodies, the Food and Drug Administration recently expressed concern about the possible effects BPA has on our brain and behavior. At this very moment, more than 90 percent of the nation’s population has BPA in their bodies, and some of it could be from the toilet paper we use. Thus giving you even more reason to utilize a warm water bidet attachment.
In recent studies, researchers tested the umbilical cord blood from infants and discovered over 250 chemicals. These chemicals came directly from the mother through food, water, air and care products. But there are other ways chemicals can enter the body, through skin absorption. The skin is, after all, the body’s largest organ and absorbs nutrients and chemicals through air and by simple contact. After the nutrients and chemicals are absorbed by the skin, they go into the bloodstream and are carried to all parts of the body.
Now, BPA isn’t the only chemical found in the toilet paper you use on a daily basis. The list of chemicals in toilet paper is as long as it is scary. When you use toilet paper, you are essentially applying chemicals like chlorine gas, chlorine dioxide and lye right on one of the more sensitive parts of your body.
If this concerns you, then perhaps it is time to do away with toilet paper. Order you bidet today and sleep better at night.
