Women should pay close attention to what they insert into their vaginas. Especially new tampons that may contain mold, or grow mold after a certain amount of time of use as I will explain below.
For example, a few years ago, ABC News reported about a 23 year old Texas woman, Danielle Par who opened up a brand new package of tampons, and to her horror she found black mold growing on the tampons. She was literally seconds away from inserting the moldy tampons inside her.
These moldy tampons were not just some freaky toxic one time incident. Oh, no, no, no!!!
This was their scary response:
“We understand how distressing it can be to find mold on a product that is used for personal hygiene and apologize for your concern. In instances where it has been found, we conducted tests on the product involved and have found the mold to be a common environmental species that carries no health risk.
The vegetative mold is similar in nature to mold on vegetables or in baked goods.”
WTF?!!! The mold growing on the tampons is the same mold that grows on vegetables and baked goods, and they ignorantly, or deceivingly claim that it carries no health risk?
Excuse me, but what a crock of moldy tampon bull$hit!
Of course this mold that grows on old vegetables and bread can be dangerous to your health. That is why we humans do not buy and eat old fruits, vegetables and food with mold because that is how you get sick with food poisoning.
The same thing can happen in the vagina and women can get a terrible yeast (fungus/mold) infection if they are not careful.
As I mentioned above, this toxic moldy problem with tampons is not some one time freak event. I Googled moldy tampons and found another story of a women who opened a brand new package of tampons and found mold growing on them. Not only that, I also discovered stories of women complaining that their used tampons smell like moldy old bread.
The Daily Mail reported on a New Zealand woman who opened a brand new pack to find all the tampons covered in mold:
“A young woman was left in disgust after discovering mouldy tampons in a newly-bought pack.
Paula Stechman, from New Zealand, posted a disturbing photograph on social media in an attempt to warn other women to think twice about what’s inside their tampon applicators.
The image, which was shared on Facebook on Friday night, shows what appears to be large spots of mould covering up to five U by Kotex tampons.
‘To all my female friends that use U by Kotex tampons triple check them before usingvthem [sic] as this is a pack I brought today! All of them were moldy… [sic]’ she wrote.”
As I mentioned above, some women are reporting a moldy bread smell when they take out their dirty tampons which would suggest that a overgrowth of yeast, (AKA fungus/mold) has already started to grow in their vaginas.
Many people will call this a bacterial overgrowth, but they are simply mistaken because yeast is a type of mold (fungus).
The moldy bread smell is yeast which is simply a mold (fungus). Not bacteria!
It is suggested that women should change their tampons every 3-6 hours in order to prevent the mold from growing on their tampons and in their vaginas.
That recommendation sounds like when you leave cooked food on the table and you should refrigerate it before it starts growing mold which would of course, cause you to get sick with food poisoning.
That makes perfect toxic moldy tampon bread sense.
