Henner Ritter, bueso und Tampon-Alarm

mail an attac-Listen:

Jeder Beruf hat seine spezifische Berufskrankheit, sagt man. Für welche Krankheit mögen nun Ärzte anfällig sein? Vielleicht hilft uns bei der Beantwortung dieser Frage die Beobachtung des Arztes Henner Ritter, Facharzt für Psychotherapeutische Medizin. Wie sieht die Symptomatik aus? Henner Ritter verschickt mails an Adressen, die er aus dem attac-Verteiler abgefischt hat. Das wäre schon mal eine Nichbeachtung fremder Ichgrenzen bei gleichzeitiger Ausdehnung der eigenen. Umgangssprachlich nennt man das distanzlos und anmaßend. Das ist eine Frechheit aber keine Krankheit.

Eher schon auffällig sind die Inhalte von Henner-Ritter-spam. Er verschickt über die Liste BÜSO-Material und Hinweise auf den indischen Avatar Sai Baba. An mich privat gerichtet sind u.a. e-mails von rense.com mit dem Hinweis, das könnte für mich interessant sein, da Juden hier ihre eigenen Flaggen verbrennen.

Seine jüngste Tartarenmeldung stammt von Donnerstag. Da wird Health Alert gegeben. Warnung an alle Frauen: Die Tampons enthalten Kunstseide und Dioxin und verursachen Zervixkarzinome. Da kommt Angst auf. 51% der Kulturmenschheit wäre vom Aussterben bedroht, hätte uns der Doc nicht gütig gewarnt. Henner, dem edlen Ritter sei Dank.
Ja, so hätte er es gerne.

Als Tampon-Fighter erobert er die Herzen der unwissenden Frauen. Wer so gut und weise ist, der kann doch bei BÜSO nicht falsch liegen, wenn er zielgenau den Tampon als chemischen Kampfstoff entlarvt hat.

Was ist mit Henner Ritter los? Warum macht er das? Ist er krank? Hat er eine Paranoia mit einhergehendem Grössenwahn, Allmachtsvorstellungen und einem Retter- (nicht Ritter-)Syndrom? Ist er Opfer einer ärztlichen Berufskrankheit geworden?
Ich weiss es nicht. Ich stelle keine Diagnosen.

Viele Grüsse aus Köln

Betreff: Health Alert re tampons

This was sent to me by someone and I think merits sending it on.


This is a serious Health Alert....not a joke.

FYI ... Ladies (and gentlemem) Please Read!!!!

If you are a woman and use pads, but ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE

TAMPONS, read this and pass it on to your friends. For the men

receiving this email, please forward it to your friends,
significant others, sisters, mothers, daughters, etc.

Check the labels of the sanitary pads or tampons that you are

going to buy the next time and see whether you spot any of the

familiar signs stated in this email.

No wonder so many women in the world suffer from cervical cancer

and womb tumors.

Have you heard that tampon makers include asbestos in tampons?

Why would they do this?

Because asbestos makes you bleed more, if you bleed more, you're

going to need to use more. Why isn't this against the law since
asbestos is

so dangerous? Because the powers that be, in all their wisdom

(not),did not consider tampons as being ingested and,therefore,
did not consider them illegal or dangerous.

This month's Essence magazine mentions 2 manufacturers of a cotton

tampon alternative. The companies are: Organic Essentials @

1-800-765-6491 and

Terra Femme @ 1-800-755-0212. A woman getting her Ph.D. at

University of Colorado sent the following:

"I am writing this because women are not being informed about the

dangers of something most of us use: Tampons. I am taking a class

month and I have been learning a lot about biology and women,

feminine hygiene.

Recently we have learned that tampons are actually dangerous (for

other reasons than TSS). After learning about this in our class, most


the females wound up feeling angry and upset with the tampon
and I for one, am going to do something about it. To start, I want to

inform everyone I can, and email is the fastest way that I know how.

HERE IS THE SCOOP: Tampons contain two things that are potentially


Rayon (for absorbency), and dioxin (a chemical used in bleaching).

The tampon industry is convinced that we, as women, need bleached

white products in order to view the product as pure and clean. The

problem here is that the dioxin, can lead to very harmful problems
for a woman. Dioxin is potentially carcinogenic cancer-associated)
and is toxic to the immune and reproductive systems. It has also been

linked to endometriosis and lower sperm counts for men. For both

sexes, it breaks down the immune system.

Last September, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported

that there really is no "acceptable" level of exposure to dioxin

given that it is cumulative and slow to disintegrate. The real
danger comes from repeated contact (Karen Couppert "Pulling the
Plug on the Tampon Industry"). I'd say using about 4-5 tampons a day,

five days a month, for 38 years is "repeated contact",

wouldn't you?

Rayon contributes to the danger of tampons and dioxin because it is a


absorbent substance.

Therefore, when fibers from the tampons are left behind in the

vagina (as usually occurs), it creates a breeding ground for the
It also stays in a lot longer that it would with just cotton tampons.

This is also the reason why TSS (toxic shock syndrome) occurs.


Using feminine hygiene products that aren't bleached and that are

all cotton. Other feminine hygiene products (pads/napkins) contain

dioxin as well, but they are not nearly as dangerous. So, what can
you do if you can't give up using tampons? Use tampons that are
made from 100% UNBLEACHED.

Unfortunately, there are very few companies that make these safe

tampons. They are usually only found in health food stores. Countries

all over the world (Sweden, Germany,British Columbia, etc.) have
demanded a switch to this safer tampon, while the US has decided

to keep us in the dark about it. In 1989, activists in England

mounted a campaign against chlorine bleaching.
>Six weeks and 50,000 letters later,the makers of sanitary

products switched to oxygen bleaching (one of the green methods

available) (MS magazine,May/June 1995).

WHAT TO DO NOW: ............. Tell people. Everyon!. Inform them!!!

We are being manipulated by this industry and the government,

let's do something about it!

Please write to the companies: Tampax (Tambrands); Playtex; O.B.;

Kotex. All the 800 numbers are listed on the boxes. Let them know

we demand a safe product:


REMINDER: In order not to lose the impact of this email, I

suggest that anyone who wants to forward it to their friends,

PLEASE copy this mail and paste it to a NEW message.

That way it will not distort the whole message with all the

forward arrows and the avoid hidden viruses!

Please do this with consideration and seriousness." Thank you all.
