Prof. Domingo has been recently interviewed by SINC La Ciencia es Noticia (Science is news) and La Vanguardia. The reason of such interview was the last TecnATox research focused on the occurrence of toxic chemical compounds in clothes and related human health risks.

The textile industry uses toxic compounds affecting the environment, but also the health of such industry workers. Recent studies indicate that depending on the use and kind of clothes, consumers might suffer more than just a cutaneous allergy. These risks are not properly considered by the regulations of textile products. You can read the full press releases in the following links:
