Tampons are dangerous for women

Many women in the world have suffered from a rather rare
disease called toxic shock syndrome. This disease is caused
by different strains of Staphylococcus aureus. Bacteria are
present in their mass on the skin and mucous membranes.
Sometimes they produce TSST-1 toxin, which can lead to
amutation and even death of a woman. Unless, of course,
doctors diagnose this disease in time. The possibility of
developing toxic shock syndrome due to tampons was first
reported by American doctors in 1978. Since 1980, in the
United States, pathology has been isolated as a separate
disease. And after 3 years this problem became so acute that
it was brought up for discussion by the participants of the
international conference. Although this serious condition
develops in only 14 out of 100 thousand women, it needs to
be described in detail. Since, like worms in surgical masks
and parasites in vaccines, this is also an important problem.
As mentioned above, the cause of toxic shock syndrome is
Staphylococcus Aureus, which live in the vagina of 10% of
healthy women. 98% of women who test positive for
Staphylococcus Vagina have antibodies against its toxins. The
rest have little or no antibodies, so there is a risk of developing
the disease. In the absence of immune protection, hygiene
products are the cause of the syndrome. The moisture inside
the tampons helps bacteria to multiply quickly and infect the
female body. But many manufacturers ignore safety requirements.
Tampons are not antibacterial and sterile. What can kill a woman.
