A scientific research in Germany discovered that clogs made from plastic materials can be the reason for some types of cancer. The reason is that the plastic materials include carcinogenic compounds.
The research tested ten pairs of clogs made from plastic materials. What was found was shocking: the clogs included 60% of PAHs (aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons). Clogs pose threat to the human health because of the carcinogenic substances in them. When absorbed in the body, they can cause cell mutation.
The second shocking finding was that the tested clogs included 70% of solvents and heavy metals that can be easily absorbed by the skin. If you still want to wear clogs and in order to avoid some problems, you can wear socks first.
A research has found that the original Crocs didn’t include PAHs. Anyway, they contain some solvents that can trigger allergies.
