Mattresses are made from polyurethane foam and likely contain toxic flame retardants proven to cause cancer, disrupt hormones, lower I.Q. by up to 5 points and harm the body's ability to fully detox at night as we sleep. Flame retardants such as Chlorinated Tris, which has been banned for over 35 years in children's mattresses, are now being applied to almost all other mattresses on the market today. Including MEMORY FOAM.
Tris is a toxic flame retardant that is a known carcinogen, hormone disruptor and neurotoxin. (A poison that attacks the nervous system) Tris is the most widely used flame retardant on the market today. Chlorinated Tris is used in mattresses, sofas, carpets, and almost anything made from highly flammable polyurethane foam.
Polyurethane foam is made from petroleum oil, so sleeping on it is like sleeping on liquid gasoline. No wonder so many people often have allergies and breathing problems so severe it requires medication and CPAP machines just to breathe at night.
Now you know how you go from that child to this adult who can't breathe.
