News » Science and Technology Scientists see danger in toilet paper

Toilet paper has proven to be hazardous to human health because it contains perfluorinated chemical compounds, also called “eternal chemicals”.

According to The Guardian, scientists from the University of Florida came to this conclusion after examining 21 brands of paper.

According to the researchers, these compounds are toxic and practically do not decompose. It is clarified that these substances can get into the sediment at wastewater treatment plants, which is scattered on arable land as fertilizer or poured into natural water bodies.

These chemicals are used in various areas of life, including for giving products resistant to water, stains and heat. They are also used to dye clothing, cosmetics, and even to create kitchen utensils.

Perfluorinated chemicals can cause cancer, fetal complications during pregnancy, liver disease, and more.
