Recent research has made some deeply troubling finds: Toxic flame retardants are pervasive in our homes, our bodies and the wild places that we love. These chemicals are associated with multiple adverse health effects, including reproductive and developmental problems, hormone disruption and cancer. Due to frequent hand-to-mouth contact, children are extremely vulnerable.
Flame retardants are designed to persist and some are in the same chemical class as DDT -- so the sooner we can rid our environment of these chemicals, the better.
Following recent legislative action in California, many consumer products can now meet federal and state standards without the use of toxic flame retardants. Yet they are still pervasive in the products we buy.
