Healthy Home Tips: How to avoid fire retardants (a big problem, especially for kids)

-----Original Message-----
From: Environmental Working Group [mailto:ewg@ewg.org]

Dear Miriam,

Are you trying to reduce your family's exposure to flame retardants? It's a good idea. They are associated with long-term health effects - especially in children whose developing bodies are more sensitive to chemical exposures - and they're all over your house.

We'd like to believe our government is effectively protecting us from toxic chemicals that are increasingly linked to health problems and found in many common household items, but it's not.

We think you deserve better. So we're sending you our Healthy Home Tip Series to make it easier to safeguard your family's health from the poorly studied toxic chemicals in use today. This month's tip is: How to reduce your exposure to fire retardants at home.

Learn how to minimize your exposure to fire retardants.
Our Healthy Home Tip makes it easy for you to identify fire retardants in your home and take some simple steps to reduce your family's exposure to them. You'll learn:
Why you should minimize your family's exposure.

What household products contain fire retardants.

How you can reduce your family's in-home exposure.
Tell your friends about our Healthy Home Tips. They, too, will appreciate being informed when wondering how to minimize unnecessary exposure to fire retardants.

Talk to you in a month when we discuss our next Healthy Home Tip: How to pick plastics carefully.

Thanks for reading,
