Clothes that Could Kill You? (The Sources)


Here's a handy list of all the writings and resources I harvested my info from! I always share my sources because, you know, academic integrity is important BUT ALSO because I was able to find quite a few of these sources through them being correctly credited by other articles and writings I was reading (or from doggedly searching for them using the vague descriptions of them given in articles/writings I was reading).


TADAAAAA! Sources!
