FLAME RETARDANTS - (statistic data of year 2016)
Fire and burns are the 3rd leading cause of accidental death in USA
with more than 3,000 lives per year.
The commonly-used halogen chemicals, like bromine and chlorine compounds
in flame-retardants, are toxic and cause substantial harm to humans
and the environment. It is the same with the frequently used organic
Traces of toxic flame retardants can be found in human breast milk,
fish and whales. Research shows dramatically increasing concentrations
of bromine compounds through bio accumulation causing permanent damage
to learning and movement abilities in children.
According to current growth rates, concentrations of toxic flame retardants in humans will double every 2-5 years. This means that concentrations found in human tissues will increase 100-fold or more by year 2030!
