Hello everyone, NADS blogman checking in. Today, we’re talking about getting the flag up the flagpole, but really, NOT getting the flag up the flagpole. We talk a lot about chemicals in underwear, we know. While the issue extends way out past just underwear alone, we’re an underwear brand, and thus channel our focus into what we can offer the most value on. Let’s get into it.
As you know by now, the materials used in your underwear matter. The chemicals in these materials can have a significant impact on your health, specifically your sexual and reproductive health.
Recent studies have shown that exposure to certain chemicals commonly found in everyday products (like underwear) can increase the risk of erectile dysfunction and other forms of male sexual dysfunction. Phthalates, which are commonly found in plastics, fragrances, and clothing have been linked to erectile dysfunction in men. Meanwhile, bisphenol A (BPA), which is often found in plastics, household items, and textiles has also been linked to erectile dysfunction as well.
But it's not just these specific chemicals that we need to worry about. There have been many studies that demonstrate that exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in general is associated with an increased risk of male sexual dysfunction and other reproductive issues.
So what does this mean for you and your underwear choices? Well, it's important to pay attention to the materials used in your underwear and to opt for organic options whenever possible. Organic cotton is a great choice as it is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. In addition, some companies now offer underwear made from other natural materials like merino wool or hemp. Just make sure to go for garments that are certified by a reputable organic certification body, like GOTS.
By choosing organic and natural materials for your underwear, you can reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals and reduce the risk of not being able to get it up.
Will underwear cure any issues or eliminate risk entirely? Likely not. But if you can make the swap and take the risk factor off the table, why wouldn’t you? We’re talking about your manhood here!
