Shower curtains and similar plastic products
You’ve probably already heard about polyvinyl chloride polymer, also known as PVC because it’s the third most common type of plastic. Although this type of plastic may be fine for some uses, such as in sewage pipes, it can be dangerous if we are exposed to it around the house. Shower curtains contain PVC and other toxic compounds that may be released while you shower.
These toxins can affect the reproductive and respiratory system and can cause cancer. This is why it’s important to check what your bathroom curtain is made of, and if it contains this dangerous plastic, you should choose healthy alternatives such as natural cotton or curtains that contain EVA. Also, don’t hesitate to check your children’s plastic toys and plastic containers in your home to make sure they don’t contain PVC.
