Korang pernah terfikir x pad yg selalu kita pakai setiap bulan tu di perbuat daripada apa?
Sure semua ingat dari kapas kan?
Pernah x korang rasa gatal2 kalau pakai pad tu lama sket?
Aku selalu jer gatal kalau x kerap salin..isk..
Korang tau x sebenarnya antara faktor penyebab kepada kanser pangkal rahim adalah disebabkan penggunaan pad?
Baca la artikel ni if ada masa..
But to keep it short and simple…sebenarnya pad kita diperbuat daripada kertas,kotak,bekas telur..semua barang buangan daripada kertas..even ada yg recycle pad juga..erkkk..sama jer macam diapers baby..
Dikilang, kertas2 ni semua dinyahkan warna menggunakan chemical dioxin ni.
Fungsi dioxin ni utk bleach the colored paper di samping hasilnya nampak putih dan gebu macam kapas eventhough itu hanya la kertas..
Bayangkanlah kita pakai pad yg ada chemical berbahaya ni..x ke direct jer masuk dlm badan?
Sbb tu aku mula memakai pad/pantiliner keluaran Anion ni..
Sbb nya pad ni pure cotton..x der bau herba mcm pad2 direct selling yg lain..

Benefits and advantages of Love Moon Anion Sanitary Napkins
1. Patented anionic padding in each sanitary napkin
2. The surface is made from cotton that are softer, thinner and more comfy
3. Extra absorbency
4. Halal (for Muslims)
5. 3 years expiry date
6. Breathable bottom layer which allows free-flowing of air
7. The external packing is made from aluminium foil normally used for food product packaging. It has a easy to open seal stripe which can be reused and has better antimoist, antibacterial and antifungal functions
8. Each napkin is machine packed and sealed once it is first formed on the production line so that it will not come into contact with human hands, thus preventing second contamination and ensuring safety and cleanliness
9. The padding of each napkin is made from water absorbing particles, fully wrapped
10. The glue used on Love Moon Anion Sanitary Napkins are non-toxic and edible glue as compared to most sanitary pads which used industrial glue.
Dioxins and their effects on human health
Dioxins are environmental pollutants. They have the dubious distinction of belonging to the “dirty dozen” – a group of dangerous chemicals known as persistent organic pollutants. Dioxins are of concern because of their highly toxic potential. Experiments have shown they affect a number of organs and systems. Once dioxins have entered the body, they endure a long time because of their chemical stability and their ability to be absorbed by fat tissue, where they are then stored in the body. Their half-life in the body is estimated to be seven to eleven years. In the environment, dioxins tend to accumulate in the food chain. The higher in the animal food chain one goes, the higher is the concentration of dioxins.
The chemical name for dioxin is: 2,3,7,8- tetrachlorodibenzo para dioxin (TCDD). The name ‘dioxins’ is often used for the family of structurally and chemically related polychlorinated dibenzo para dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs). Certain dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with similar toxic properties are also included under the term “dioxins”. Some 419 types of dioxin-related compounds have been identified but only about 30 of these are considered to have significant toxicity, with TCDD being the most toxic.
Sources of dioxin contamination
Dioxins are mainly by products of industrial processes but can also result from natural processes, such as volcanic eruptions and forest fires. Dioxins are unwanted by products of a wide range of manufacturing processes including smelting, chlorine bleaching of paper pulp and the manufacturing of some herbicides and pesticides. In terms of dioxin release into the environment, waste incinerators (solid waste and hospital waste) are often the worst culprits, due to incomplete burning.
Although formation of dioxins is local, environmental distribution is global. Dioxins are found throughout the world in practically all media. The highest levels of these compounds are found in some soils, sediments and food, especially dairy products, meat, fish and shellfish. Very low levels are found in plants, water and air.
Extensive stores of PCB-based waste industrial oils, many with high levels of PCDFs, exist throughout the world. Long-term storage and improper disposal of this material may result in dioxin release into the environment and the contamination of human and animal food supplies. PCB-based waste is not easily disposed of without contamination of the environment and human populations. Such material needs to be treated as hazardous waste and is best destroyed by high temperature incineration.
Effects of dioxins on human health
Short-term exposure of humans to high levels of dioxins may result in skin lesions, such as chloracne and patchy darkening of the skin, and altered liver function. Long-term exposure is linked to impairment of the immune system, the developing nervous system, the endocrine system and reproductive functions. Chronic exposure of animals to dioxins has resulted in several types of cancer. TCDD was evaluated by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 1997. Based on animal data and on human epidemiology data, TCDD was classified by IARC as a “known human carcinogen”. However, TCDD does not affect genetic material and there is a level of exposure below which cancer risk would be negligible.
Due to the omnipresence of dioxins, all people have background exposure and a certain level of dioxins in the body, leading to the so-called body burden. Current normal background exposure is not expected to affect human health on average. However, due to the high toxic potential of this class of compounds, efforts need to be undertaken to reduce current background exposure.
The developing fetus is most sensitive to dioxin exposure. The newborn, with rapidly developing organ systems, may also be more vulnerable to certain effects. Some individuals or groups of individuals may be exposed to higher levels of dioxins because of their diets (e.g., high consumers of fish in certain parts of the world) or their occupations (e.g., workers in the pulp and paper industry, in incineration plants and at hazardous waste sites, to name just a few).
