Think green proponents will find a wealth of useful information in this book by Walter Bader. Well, even if you’re not a proponent, this is a must-read I guess.
Your bedroom should be a safe haven, but unfortunately more and more research is revealing that the bedroom may be one of the most toxic places in the home. Consider that the average conventional mattress contains more toxic chemicals than a 50 gallon oil drum, and that our skin, the largest organ of the body, is also the most porous entry point. It is no wonder that chemicals found in mattresses, known to cause toxic reproductive effects, are regularly being found at significant levels in human blood samples. Walter Bader outlines the dangers of the toxic threats lurking in the home so that, armed with knowledge, you can defend yourself and your family against them.
This book features the findings of the author who had a memory foam tested in a laboratory with alarming results —- 61 chemical emissions, including the “carcinogens benzene and naphthalene”.
We’ve all got to start learning how to take care of our environment, beginning in our on homes, our bedrooms. It is for our benefit, after all.
