(NaturalNews) Fashion statements that are unhealthy are nothing new in this modern world. The controversy over bras linked to breast cancer is supported by the fact that they do impede breast lymph flow, which is needed for draining toxins from tissues.
Tattoo inks contain a myriad of heavy metals. Red tattoo inks often contain mercury, and tattoos pierce the skin leaving the ink permanently embedded. Seems like a foolish way to make a fashion statement to this author, even while living in one of the top tattooed cities in the USA, Austin, TX.
Then there are high heels that women somehow manage to dance with and even navigate while walking on cobblestone pavement. Sexually appealing to most men, they have to cause problems for gals, and they do.
Injuries from falls, twisted ankles, bunions or malformed toes, even poor posture from adjusting to wearing heels are fairly common for women who wear heels often.
One-upping the bra controversy, breast enlargement implanting is one of the top contenders for first prize as the modern world's most obvious fashion statement health hazard.
The lawsuits were flying with claims of breast cancer and other auto-immune diseases linked to synthetic breast implants in the USA during the 1980s and 90s. The claims were against the principal manufacturer of silicone breast implants, Dow Corning.
They all lead to a multi-billion dollar class action settlement from that company, which had to declare bankruptcy immediately after. Their bankruptcy protection ended in 2004. Looks like Dow should have stuck with selling their silicone products for industrial or mechanical applications.
The latest fashion statement might take the lead as the most unhealthy. But this one is exclusively a guy thing. Wearing excessively tight jeans known as skinny jeans has caught on big among young men in the UK.
Skinny jean health consequences
They have been discovered to cause bladder problems and testicular torsion. In this case, the jeans you're wearing "have you by the balls" mate.
A study of 2000 British men found one in 10 men wearing skinny jeans incurred testicular torsion from skinny jeans. Others complained of bladder problems or urinary infections causing some to slack off skinny jean use and avoid permanent bladder damage.
The testicular malady is created by the tight jeans' constricting free movement of the spermatic cord, which then gets twisted, creating testicular torsion. This cuts off blood the supply and can lead to gangrene.
While a direct connection to tight clothing and low sperm counts has not been researched, it has been noted that sperm counts tend to be higher among men who wear boxer shorts for underwear instead of those tight fitting briefs.
Here's a potential win-win for the bad guys
(Twisted sarcasm warning) The eugenics bunch can use this by promoting skinny jeans via mainstream news and the entertainment media along with the clothing industry. Posters featuring Bill Gates in skinny jeans can be widely distributed.
Then the Gates Foundation can enlist Big Pharma to create an anti-testicular torsion vaccine, which will be worthless and dangerous as usual, to counter the emerging skinny jeans health scares.
Men will want to make sure they're in with the latest fashion fad. So they'll get vaccinated with three booster shots, all endangering their health, their DNA, and their lives, while their sperm counts continue descending from twisted spermatic cords in their testicles to ensure infertility.
This can be yet another way to slyly depopulate in plain sight while keeping those still around unhealthy and in need of pharmaceuticals. The Medical Mafia will continue enjoying their large revenues as the death counts start exceeding the newborn rates.
