Flame Retardants and How They Affect Your Health

Researchers in B.C. say lower IQ and greater hyperactivity in young children appears to be significantly linked to a woman's exposure to flame retardants during early pregnancy. (Marilyn Barbone / shutterstock.com)

We recently came across this article from CTV news that talks about how children with lower IQs and greater hyperactivity are linked to mothers who were exposed to flame retardants during pregnancy.

Although the toxic chemical, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, known as PDBEs, are not put into household goods such as mattresses, cushions, pillows, carpets etc... any longer; anything you've purchased before 2005 could still contain these chemicals, so make sure to dispose of them as soon as possible. It is also important to note that although PDBEs are no longer being used, they are being replaced by other flame retardant chemicals. Who knows what effects these new chemicals can have on the body?

Perhaps we should just play it safe and go organic. No toxins at all!
