Study finds levels of toxic flame retardants 5 times higher in toddlers

from Safer Chemicals

When the PBDE fire retardant phase-out began ten years ago, we hoped that manufacturers would replace them with safer alternatives. That didn't happen. Tests published earlier this month by myself and other scientists at the Environmental Working Group and Duke University detected a biomarker indicating that all 26 children in our study had been exposed to a fire retardant called TDCIPP, linked to cancer and endocrine disruption. Their level of exposure was nearly five times the average level found in their mothers. In the most extreme case, a child had 23 times the level of the mother. more
