Reports are increasing around the world of Croc wearers, invariably young children, getting their toes caught in escalators – sometimes with drastic results.
Made of a soft, synthetic resin, Crocs were designed as a boating shoe because of their non-marking, slip-resistant soles.
Their soaring popularity has been fuelled by their appearance on the feet of the likes of George Bush, Jack Nicholson and Kate Middleton.
A couple of researchers from Germany made an examination in which was demonstrated that these sandals contain a blend of compounds that are cancer-causing and are the principle explanation behind expressing a few types of cancer. The discussion is about plastic clogs.
In this research were tested ten pairs of the best brands of shoes made of plastic. What’s more, later were tested in a research facility.
After analysis, the outcomes were stunning. The shoes or sandals that were tested contained about 60% aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
PAHs are exceptionally harmful substances that by causing cell mutation prompt to certain types of cancer. These substances are particularly damaging, toxic and cancer-causing when entering into the body by inhaling in it or penetrating through the skin pores.
As per this same research, the dark sandals or shoes contained the most astounding measure of aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons (PAHs).What’s more, about 70% of the sandals or shoes that were put to analysis, contained solvents and heavy metals.
What is most relevant after knowing this is to realize that you should avoid wearing these types of shoes. On the other hand, if you believe it’s important to wear it, then you better wear socks with the shoes, because these harmful and toxic compounds can freely and easily infiltrate into your body through the skin.
One also fascinating and vital fact is that the original Crocs did not contain any cancer-causing compound. In any case, they contained solvents that cause hypersensitivities, such as allergies, skin irritations, rashes and other skin conditions.
So, before buying Crocs or any of their various knockoffs, it is necessary to smell the shoes. A biting or sweet smell is a certain sign that the shoes are discharging solvents and contain heavy materials.
