How Dangerous are Flame Retardants?

Lisa Beres: Boy, oh boy. They sound good in theory: obviously we all want to protect our loved ones, our homes and ourselves, but flame retardants have really gotten out of control. There is a class of chemicals called brominated flame retardants that had been added for eons to household products. They’re made to inhibit ignition and slow the rate of combustion and ideally reduce the risk of household fires – but they have a very sinister effect on our health.

They’re made since certain materials are naturally flammable, but these flame retardant chemicals can impact the developing brain and have a host of negative health consequences. We are subjected to them constantly since they are in so many household products, permeating our homes. They’re in furniture, they’re in mattresses, they’re in car seats and a lot of strollers, and other children’s products. They’re even in electronics and the cases of cell phones and computers. We are immensely exposed to these chemicals.

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
