You do well to stop using toilet paper, here's why
Toilet paper for many of us seems to be the most important toilet hygiene product. But, in fact, in many Asian countries, people do not even have a toilet. When it comes to toilet paper, most of us prefer the softest with the most pleasant scent possible, but it may not be the healthiest way to stay clean.
This is why using toilet paper may not be the best solution for your health.
1. May irritate your private parts
It is always important to read the labels when buying a particular product, and although toilet paper is a toilet product companies do not list all the ingredients, under the claim "rights to trade secrets". However, a dangerous chemical called formaldehyde is often used in toilet paper to make it stronger and softer. Formaldehyde can be very irritating to the private parts and can also make the eyes, skin and throat more sensitive.
2. May cause allergies.
Fragrant toilet paper certainly smells good but these attractive scents can lead to allergies. To make toilet paper smell like a spring garden, companies often use artificial fragrances that can disrupt the healthy pH of your private parts and even cause infections.
3. It can affect your reproductive health
Buying recycled toilet paper may seem like a good choice, but it often contains a powerful endocrine ingredient called bisphenol A, or BPA. BPA is chemically similar to the hormone, estrogen, which is crucial to fertility and uterine function. Because it mimics estrogen, BPA can lead to problems with reproduction. In fact, avoiding BPA is one of the first things medical experts recommend to women who want to start a family.
4. May not be doing the job properly
Although toilet paper is supposed to give you a sense of cleanliness, it may not be the most effective way to clean your private parts. In addition to causing irritation, wiping with toilet paper comes with the risk of spreading germs and fecal matter to your hands and nails. Using a bidet, for example, may be a better way to stay clean, and because you only use water, it is softer for your skin as well.
