In the United States, women spend over $2 billion per year on feminine hygiene products, including tampons, pads, feminine washes, sprays, powders, and personal wipes. Recently, little research existed on how chemicals in these products may affect women’s health. As findings emerge, several scientists and interest groups are now calling for more research to understand the connection between such products and women's health.
There’s A Way StyronDavis Resource Network is devoted to the health and wellness of all people. Our organizational activities are focused on the many natural ways of promoting healing. From vitamins to supplements to information pertaining to products and services that are good for the body and less harmful for the environment. Some of our areas of special interest are Women’s reproductive health, prostate cancer in men and autism in children.
When it comes to women’s reproductive health, research on contraceptives and STIs continues to spark interest worldwide. But a related area—chemical exposures from feminine hygiene products and personal lubricants—has received much less attention.

Autism Spectrum in children is another special interest of our organization. Children who are, or who are destined to become, autistic have lower 25(OH)D levels at 3 months of gestation, at birth and at age 8 compared to their unaffected siblings. Two open label trials found high dose vitamin D improves the core symptoms of autism in about 75% of autistic children.
