The body absorbs what is put on the skin, including pesticides and other toxins contained in clothing. Clothing also restricts the skins ability to breathe and thus hinders the release of toxins from the body.

    Ever been to a bon fire or smokey restaurant? What did your clothes smell like the next day when you threw them in the washer?

Wash your clothes and put them in the dryer, how many chemicals did you just expose your clothes and thus yourself to?
