ditch your mattress
PBDEs are the new PCBs! Don't sleep with them, get a new healthy mattress from The Natural Bedding Company in Stanmore. Exposure to PBDEs at normal household levels can reduce your fertility level and damage your nervous system. Used as a fire retardant on synthetic materials, this stuff is being fazed out very slowly, but is in everything made before 2005 and continues to be used. It is in carpets, foam padding in furniture, clothes, car interiors and electronics.
