Hi,

has the topic of clothing / detergents ever been discussed by Ray Peat ?

Knowing that we can absorb through the skin, harmless clothing should bé an important topic for a healthy life.

Thank you

Peat advises against the use of clothes because it blocks red light from penetrating the skin.

just going out on a limb here...of course, naked is best. Next best is loose, non chemically laden clothing preferably made of and washed with only organic ingedients and dried in the open air. Next best is basically the least chemicals, the least harshness, the least bound, the least tight

A 24-month study of male dogs wearing either loose-fitting polyester underpants or loose-fitting cotton ones showed that wearing polyester created significant decreases in sperm count and degeneration of the testes. The animals wearing cotton suffered no side effects. (And, please, no letters to the editor about dogs wearing underwear. I agree, it sounds silly.)

I got an organic wool/cotton/latex futon that is very comfortable

I researched for a while and that seemed like the least toxic combo.

Thanks Seraphim - the plastic part wouldnt worry me too much. If you start going that route of observation, I quickly start avoiding 99% of food products out there!!!

What do you make of the vegetable oil contact? would there be an PUFA concerns here?
Yea that was another concern with the liquid detergent. The avoidance of plastics is also more an environmental thing. I try to buy all fresh food.
