These Sandals are dangerous – Throw them away.

These Sandals are dangerous - Throw them away.

A scientific research in Germany discovered that clogs made from plastic materials can be the reason for some types of cancer. The reason is that the plastic materials include carcinogenic compounds.

German broadcaster WDR, sent 10 plastic-clogs from different price ranges to the lab for testing. According to the analysis all ten tested shoes, including those of US brands Crocs and Skechers, contained problematic substances.

Researchers urge that if you still want to wear clogs and in order to avoid some problems, you can wear socks first,as dangerous toxins are absorbed by the skin when it comes in direct contact with the materials.

Clogs pose threat to the human health because of the carcinogenic substances in them. When absorbed in the body, they can cause cell mutation.

The especially problematic substances are so-called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which have been identified as carcinogenic, mutagenic, or teratogenic.

PAHs were found in six out of ten shoes, with black shoes having the highest amounts. The toxic chemical can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin.

The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment  also advises consumers to mainly avoid plastic clogs with unpleasant odor.

A research has found that the original Crocs didn’t include PAHs. Anyway, they contain some solvents that can trigger allergies.

The bottom line is that your sandal collection can be responsible for the emergence of cancer. So, just throw out the plastic sandals today. Do not buy them again although they look beautiful and are matching to your outfit. Don’t let your fashion sense make a harmful impact on your health.

Before buying Crocs or any of their numerous knock offs, it is recommended to smell the shoes. A biting or sweet smell is a sure sign that the shoes are releasing solvents.
