Do you Wear Flame Retardant Clothing?

imagesPlease think twice before purchasing flame retardant clothing.  Fire retardant chemical (brominated Tris) has been added to children’s clothing fabrics since 1971 when the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ruled that children’s sleepwear must be self-extinguishing when exposed to heat or flames.  Brominated Tris has since been tested and discovered to be a human carcinogen (cancer causing).  It was found that children were absorbing these chemicals through their skin.
