Dangerous Clothes Monday

Fashion can be harmful to more than your pocketbook

Keeping up with the latest fashion trends can be harmful to more than your pocketbook. Many common clothing choices can be potentially deadly.

Tight clothing such as collared shirts, and accessories such as belts, ties, stiletto heels, and 50 pound shoulder bags are all potential health hazards.

"Rarely do comfort and health get much more than a nod in the fashion picture. Yet the failure to consider them can impair performance, diminish alertness, foster irritability and even compromise health.
Headaches, varicose veins, corns and calluses, gastrointestinal distress, heat prostration and even vaginitis can result from attempts to 'dress properly' or follow fashion trends." - New York Times

Fashion is deadly, and best avoided. Have a great week.


  1. Not to mention all the irritating and poisonous chemicals still in the clothing. They can take dozens of washing to completely wash out, I hear.

    1. And a lot of detergents are not that great either. Yikes! It's hard to get away from.

    just found your blog and im hooked and a fan, but stuffing more people in smaller spaces isnt the answer, its LESS BREEDING, no one ever wants to talk about over population, the key to simple, green, laid back living is being child free, but everyone is to scared to talk about it, breeders would have a heart attack, but its true, breeding is out of control

    1. Glad we hooked you - welcome.

      There is a lot of social pressure to produce children, but a child-free, or child-light life can be good.

      Linda and I do not have children (other than the ones that we have taught over the years).

      We need fewer people, or drastically reduced consumption. Both would be good.
