Are you wearing plastic cogs? Well it is about time to stop because recently in Germany a research claimed that they include tremendous number of carcinogen elements and you are at great risk of having cancer just by wearing them.
This research was realized by taking ten pairs of plastic cogs from different companies and test them in a laboratory. The results were terrifying since they show the existence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the six out of ten pairs tested.
These polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are very toxic and cancer-causing substances which can provoke mutation in our cells. Either you inhale them or make contact with your skin they are extremely dangerous for your health. The one with higher percentage of carcinogens are the black cogs.
Moreover, other toxic substances were found like heavy metals and solvents in seven out of ten cogs. If in touch with the skin they can easily be absorbed and cause cancer so in order to avoid the damaging consequences put on cotton socks before you wear it.
The original Crocs were tested as well so the results showed that they do not contain PAH substances, but four allergic solvents so they still are dangerous.
