Did you know there are dozens of materials in your home that have been treated with flame-retardant chemicals? Everything from TV sets and mattresses to plastic bottles and clothing may be leaking toxins into your body. This can lead to physical or neurological damage. To help reduce your exposure to chemicals like polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDEs) consider throwing out old items and replacing them with new ones. Many companies are now manufacturing PBDE-free products.
