Environmental problems and health risks with disposable baby diapers: Monitoring of toxic compounds by application of analytical techniques and need of education

Abstrakt

Due to the widespread use of disposable diapers in healthy babies as well as children prone to allergiesand premature babies with reduced immunity, disposable diapers should only be made of non-toxic andnatural ingredients. Unfortunately, disposable diaper manufacturers are reluctant to present their exactchemical composition, claiming that their trade secrets apply. However, several reports show thatdisposable diapers of well-known brands,“store”brands and“bio”brands may contain a number of toxiccompounds. There is very little study focused on the chemical composition of disposable baby diapers.Commonly, diapers may contain different pollutants including polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs),organically active compounds of ethylene benzene, xylene and toluene, polyacrylates or phthalates.Some of them may be risky for children's health. Only few methodologies are reported for the deter-mination of some groups of compounds that could have a negative impact on the baby's skin condition.These procedures are mainly based on chromatographic separation. Another issue connected withdisposable baby diapers is its enormous impact on the environment, starting from the production step,finishing at disposal procedure. Thus, the aim of this review is to present problems connected withdisposable baby diapers and its impact on the baby's health and on the environment. One of theimportant issues in this range is the limited knowledge in society and this aspect is also described.Another topic discussed here is related to the occurrence of toxic compounds in disposable baby diapers.Moreover, the importance of analysis and monitoring of these xenobiotics is reviewed in the article.
