Are those personal use flushable wipes bad for the environment? If so, why?

I was told by a doctor that using those moistened flushable wipes are better than dry toilet paper. Do they break down though? Are they bad for the environment?

That water goes to a treatment plant any way so is it didn't break down they would get it. If you have a septic tank then yes it will dissolve.
The ones that say "flushable" are biodegradable, no problem.
no.they discompound in earth in a small amount of time....say a day or two
