If you have older furniture in your home, including mattress toppers, mattresses and couches, you could be poisoning your home with toxic chemicals. Older and newer types of furniture that are not certified organic contain many harmful contaminants that can make you and your family members very ill.
What These Toxic Chemicals Are Linked To
There is a large array of medical research that has proven that flame retardants, most commonly found on couches and bedroom furniture are linked to many forms of caner, infertility, obesity and even serious brain disorders such as autism and ADHD. When the old furniture is disposed of, it releases these harmful toxic and poisonous chemicals into the environment to affect outdoor air quality and wildlife.
