[MOL] FDA Addresses Internet Allegations About Tampons

Good Morning My FRiends,

Thought the following information to be of some interest

WESTPORT, Feb 25 (Reuters Health) - The Food and Drug
Administration's Center for Devices and Radiologic Health on
Tuesday issued a statement intended to clear up rumors on the
Internet that tampons are contaminated by asbestos and dioxin
during manufacture.  The FDA said that asbestos is not an
ingredient or a trace contaminant in any brand of tampon that is
manufactured in the US. The agency said that it has not received
any "...evidence of asbestos in tampons or any reports regarding
increased menstrual bleeding following tampon use."

God Bless
