Sitting in the Hot Seat

The University of Cincinnati researchers found a link between prenatal exposure to flame retardants and other chemicals linked to behavioral problems in children. Even low-level chemical exposure can significantly impact a child's development.

Before you ditch your couch remember that small, simple changes can still make a significant impact in protecting your family's health. 

Here are 3 simple tips to protecting yourself and family from flame retardants. 

  1. Frequently clean the surfaces in your home, and vacuum your floors often. Make sure you are

  2. As you can, replace your cookware with ceramic or stainless steal cookware that does not contain non-stick surfaces.

  3. Next time your child outgrows his pajamas purchase him sleepwear that is made from organic cotton and does not contain any flame resistant chemicals. While you're at it, consider making sure his or her bedding doesn't have flame retardants either.

Remember, small changes add up when protecting our family. #trashthetoxins
