Bet You Didn’t Know: 5 Health Hazards in Your Handbag

filthyMen fit everything they need into a small wallet which fits successfully into a small pocket; women on the other hand carry huge bags, dumping all unnecessary things into it. Did you know that could become a hazard?

Water bottles: water is good for your health but drinking them from a plastic bottle could affect your health. Research shows that a chemical called phthalates that is contained in the plastic can leach into your water overtime which may lead to hormone imbalances and fertility problems.

Makeup: make up could be dangerous to you overtime. For example your brushes, if they are used over a long period of time, they become dirty and full of bacteria from constantly touching the skin. Even mascara and eyeliner, if used longer than 6 months could cause an eye infection.

Used tissues:  these used tissues contain germs that could spread through your bags and onto others as every time you look for something in your bag your fingers may touch the tissues causing the bacteria to spread to your hands.

Heavy items: these heavy items can cause your bag to become heavy causing a lot of strain on your back, shoulder and neck.

Nail File: when filing your nails the file is coming in to contact with both exposed and fresh nail. This can cause the spread of germs, if it has any fungus in there it is going to stay there and grow.

Make sure when carrying your bag that it is free of any of these health hazards.
