Do you want to keep your nuts, or do you want to look squished into skinny jeans that don’t look good on the majority of wearers?
Natural News reports:
Fashion statements that are unhealthy are nothing new in this modern world. The controversy over bras linked to breast cancer is supported by the fact that they do impede breast lymph flow, which is needed for draining toxins from tissues.
Tattoo inks contain a myriad of heavy metals. Red tattoo inks often contain mercury, and tattoos pierce the skin leaving the ink permanently embedded. Seems like a foolish way to make a fashion statement to this author, even while living in one of the top tattooed cities in the USA, Austin, TX.
Then there are high heels that women somehow manage to dance with and even navigate while walking on cobblestone pavement. Sexually appealing to most men, they have to cause problems for gals, and they do.
Injuries from falls, twisted ankles, bunions or malformed toes, even poor posture from adjusting to wearing heels are fairly common for women who wear heels often.
One-upping the bra controversy, breast enlargement implanting is one of the top contenders for first prize as the modern world’s most obvious fashion statement health hazard.
The lawsuits were flying with claims of breast cancer and other auto-immune diseases linked to synthetic breast implants in the USA during the 1980s and 90s. The claims were against the principal manufacturer of silicone breast implants, Dow Corning.
They all lead to a multi-billion dollar class action settlement from that company, which had to declare bankruptcy immediately after. Their bankruptcy protection ended in 2004. Looks like Dow should have stuck with selling their silicone products for industrial or mechanical applications.
The latest fashion statement might take the lead as the most unhealthy. But this one is exclusively a guy thing. Wearing excessively tight jeans known as skinny jeans has caught on big among young men in the UK.
