One scientific research that was conducted in Germany discovered that clogs which are made from plastic materials contain a lot of carcinogenic compounds which can be the reason for the emergence of some types of cancer.
The scientists wanted to prove this research and they selected ten pairs of clogs that were made of plastic. They chose the best brands on the market. Afterwards they analyzed them in a laboratory. They were amazed by the results, because the clogs contained 60% of PAHs also known as aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons.
If you have not heard they are very carcinogenic substances and can cause cell mutation if the body absorbs them.
They are extremely harmful when inhaled and they can penetrate into the skin and enter in the body.
Based on the research the black clogs contained the highest amount of this certain type of carcinogen.
Approximately 70% of the clogs that were examined contained solvents and heavy metals.
These toxic compounds can enter in the body though the skin. In order to avoid certain types of problems, you should wear socks first.
One interesting fact is that the original Crocs did not contain PAHs. However, they contained four solvents which can cause allergies.
