The difficulty we face is that we are exposed on a daily basis to toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the cosmetics we use, and the water we drink to mention just a few of the challenges we face.
We go to bed to get some rest, and spend up to 8 hours resting in a bed on a mattress that by law has to be flame resistant in the event of a fire. Now what that means is that our mattress has been treated with toxic flame retardant chemicals such as; polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and Antimony.
‘’Two years ago, the global scientific community decided that two brominated flame retardants were so harmful and such dangerous substances that they needed to be eliminated globally.’’
Also the foam used in mattresses is often polyurethane that emits toluene which has been connected with birth defects.
