Brian & Anna Maria Clement - Toxic Clothing: Synthetic vs. Natural Fibers7 Sep 2013
Authors Brian Clement and Anna Maria Clement are Co-Directors of the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida. They have authored a dozen books on natural health antidotes to illness and disease. We discuss their book Killer Clothes. They'll explain how seemingly innocent clothing choices endanger your health. This has been documented by numerous medical studies. Brian and Anna Maria detail the toxins involved in clothing and fabric manufacturing. We talk about the harmful effects of synthetic clothing vs. the advantages of natural fiber fabrics and organics. Brian and Anna Maria explain how the increased use of synthetic clothing fibers has contributed to breast cancer, infertility and a range of diseases. Women who wear synthetic bras, nylons and panties are at a greater risk of getting cancer and infections. We'll also discuss the "father" of synthetic fabrics, Wallace Hume Carothers, a Dupont chemist who later killed himself. While the fashion industry attempts to uphold an image of beauty, hosting charitable galas claiming to care about humanity and the environment, there lays an ugly secret hidden from public awareness involving lobbyists, mass worldwide pollution, money and cancer causing chemicals. Meanwhile natural super fibers such a hemp, that grow naturally without any intervention, are suppressed. Later, we discuss the hypocrisy of the eco-friendly and green claims used by health companies and organic clothing manufacturers. The interview ends on the dangerous future of clothing as nanoparticles are now being woven into fabrics.
