A new law requires dangerous flame retardant chemicals to be added to your mattress. The primary chemical used will be a poisonous pesticide called Boric Acid that has many known health risks including, anemia, cyanosis, coma, testicle damage, infertility, sterility, fetal death, birth defects, and simple slow poisoning!
