The Period Conspiracy: Who's Out to Hurt You--and How (or, Before You Buy Tampons, read this.) is an almost completely textual zine created in 1998 and published in VA Beach, VA. It exposes large companies that make unsafe menstrual health products. Tampons, especially by Tampax, are targeted for containing toxins and causing toxic shock syndrome. Lists of alternatives are provided and critiqued. The author also takes on Sassy magazine, the luxury tax on tampons, and advertiser coercion.
