We monitor air quality, tap water, levels of various radiations in the atmosphere, the food sold in grocery stores, the toys our kids are playing with, the food our dogs eat, food containers (plastic versus glass) and pharmaceutical drugs, as they all have a big impact on health.
What about clothes that we wear everyday, especially if manufactured abroad using the cheapest synthetic material? What kind of quality control is in place?

How would we go about testing this, as cancer might develop after 30 years or more, wearing the same type of fabric?
How can data science answer this question?
