纽爱宝贝—环保的选择 nuababy - the eco-friendly option

关于纸尿裤的惊人统计数据:纸尿裤是垃圾填埋处的第三大物品,约占所有固体垃圾的4%。每天有超过150万条纸尿裤进入爱尔兰的垃圾填埋场,超过800万条进入英国,这令爱尔兰、英国政府及当地委员会头痛不已。每条纸尿裤的分解时间预计为500多年。

The frightening statistics are that disposable nappies (diapers) are the third largest consumer item in landfills making up about 4% of all solid waste. Disposable nappies create huge headaches for local councils and the national government in Ireland and the U.K, with more than 1.5 million disposable nappies going into landfills every day in Ireland and 8 million in the U.K. The estimated decomposition time for a single nappy is 500+ years.

纸尿裤中的化学品 Chemicals in disposable nappies

来自www.DrMomma.org, 2011年4月

对于当今崇尚便捷与临时用品的生活方式,纸尿裤似乎是一项必需品。尽管使用很广,合成材质的一次性纸尿裤中经常含有关系到长期健康问题的化学品。一项发表在《环境卫生纪要》(1999)的研究称,纸尿裤应当被视作可能导致或恶化儿童哮喘、呼吸道问题的一项因素。纸尿裤中的化学品还容易引发婴儿柔软、敏感的皮肤出现皮疹和过敏反应。

From www.DrMomma.org, April 2011

Disposable diapers seem to be a necessity in today’s lifestyle of convenience and temporary items. Though they are commonly used, synthetic, single-use diapers often contain chemicals linked to long-term health conditions. A study published in the Archives of Environmental Health (1999) states that disposable diapers should be considered to be a factor that may cause or worsen childhood asthma and respiratory problems. The soft, sensitive skin of babies is also prone to rashes and allergic reactions due to the chemicals in disposable diapers.

Nappy ‘Link to Infertility’

BBC,2000年9月 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/941174.stm

近几十年来,纸尿裤变得广受欢迎,科学家相信纸尿裤可能关系到男性不育症和睾丸癌。德国的一项研究表明:纸尿裤可能对男童生殖系统发育具有不良影响。Kiel大学的科学家发现这些衬里带塑料的纸尿裤将阴囊的温度提高了1度。较高的阴囊温度已知可降低成年男子的精子数。德国科学家相信该发现能解释过去25年来男性不育症的上升和精子数的下降。

Scientists believe disposable nappies could be linked to both male infertility and testicular cancer.

Research carried out in Germany suggests that disposable nappies may have an adverse affect on the development of a boy's reproductive system.
