Chemicals that cost more lives than they save

It’s like straining at a gnat but swallowing a flame-retardant couch. If a piece of furniture that has been treated with flame retardant chemicals catches fire, it will give off much higher levels of deadly carbon monoxide, soot, and smoke. These byproducts are actually more likely to kill you than burns. But, the chemical industry stands behind them and swears that the flame retardants they sell save lives. But are these chemicals costing us more in poor health and deaths by disease than the lives they save? Studies are finding more and more that flame retardants in our environments cause cancers, developmental problems and other diseases. When you use flame retardants on furniture and in carpets, bedding and clothing, you are now subject to a daily assault of toxic chemicals. Natural materials like wool, latex and hemp have proven to resist or slow the spread of fire without sousing them with toxic flame retardants.
