Are You Sitting on a Health Crisis?

In this short video by Green Science Policy Institute, you'll discover how flame retardants are one of six classes of chemicals found in consumer products that negatively affect your health. While adding chemicals to slow fire ignition may have begun with good intentions, the chemicals are worse than ineffective — they are dangerous.  If they were effective, their strongest supporters would be firefighters.
