I feel like TSS (Toxic shock Syndrome) is something that so many women are aware off yet not something that they know much about, when Veeda got in touch with me asking if I would like to try some of their products I thought it would give the perfect opportunity to talk about TSS on my blog and learn a little more about it myself.
TSS is actually caused by a bacterial infection which can then lead to kidney failure, lung collapse and sometimes even Cardiac arrests. Currently over 50% of cases of TSS are linked to High absorbency tampon use. A chemical called viscose rayon which is often found in conventional tampons promotes the growth of the toxin that is linked to TSS. Even though people think it is a thing of the past 1 in 100 women in the developed world will at some point contract tampon related TSS. By using cotton tampons like Veeda which are 100% cotton which therefore contain no nasty chemicals means that you reduce your likelihood of contracting TSS infact their has never been a case of tampon related TSS when using 100& cotton tampons.
Veeda's products are also all incredibly environmentally friendly, their towels are wrapped in packaging that degrades in 6-12 months and even the Tampons themselves are 100% biodegradable even in landfill.
I hope you guys found this post interesting and I hope you learned something about TSS.
