Clothing effects on human health

Here's sharing some websites I came across recently when I was researching about the effects of clothing material on human health.

This website lists the six synthetic or artificial fabrics to avoid because they may be toxic or harmful to some people. These include polyester and nylon. http://bodyecology.com/articles/top_6_fabrics_you_should_avoid_wearing.php#.UGZZpK5J0SU

The article recommends people to wear clothes made of natural fibres, such as cotton, silk, wool and linen. I have decided to discard some of my clothes from my drawer recently after reading about it, such as my shirts and shorts that are made of polyester.

I have read in some other websites such as this one http://www.ecologycenter.org/factsheets/plastichealtheffects.html that polyester clothes may cause skin allergy or rashes and cause respiratory irritations.

This article says that studies have shown that polyester garments and undergarments may affect pregnancy health in women, and also affect fertility in men. http://blog.fashionandearth.com/2010/05/16/polyester-clothing-and-your-health/
