One scientific research conducted in Germany have revealed the reason why some types of cancer are clogs made from plastic materials. Now, probably you are interested: WHY? The answer is quite simple – plastic materials contain carcinogenic compounds.
It is important to mention that this research included ten pairs of clogs made from plastic materials, or to be more precise, allegedly the best brands that you can find on the market today. The laboratory results were shocking the clogs contained 60% of PAHs. PHAs are aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons that are extremely dangerous for the human health as they are substances that are carcinogenic. If in some way these substances are absorbed in the body they can cause cell mutation.
In addition to that, another shocking discovery is that the tested clogs were containing 70% of solvents and heavy metals which can are easily absorbed by the human skin. First precautionary measure is wearing socks, as a great help in order to avoid some type of problem if you still want to wear clogs.
On the other hand, the research proved that original Crocs did not contained PAHs. Still, they contained certain solvents that can cause allergies.
