The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that hair bands made from used condoms may caused sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
CDC started to raise the issue about public safety when the hair bands made in China came to America market.
They stated that China is using used condoms, recycled, to make hair bands that are being sold at markets and beauty salons.
The main concern is about the possibility of getting STDs, genital warts and even Aids.
These kinds of hair ties are being sold all over the country and they are easy and cheap. Here is the statement from the CDC in regards with this:
“The CDC is sure that these hair ties and rubber bands which are made out of unsanitary condoms, has four times bigger amount of bacteria on it than those bacteria found in the public restroom toilet. The Aids virus, warts, herpes and other venereal diseases are easy to get when the rubber band or hair ties end up in the mouth while setting their hair.”
One woman from Los Angeles was shocked when she realised that the hair band she bought was made from a recycled condom.
She got the scissors and carefully cut around the edges. She saw the used condom and was lost for words. She wanted to tell more people about this so that people would stop using them.
Look before you buy next time. If they are made in China, they are a potential health hazard. Throw them immediately!—Weeklyhealthylife.com
