The nature of exposure

The Science of Toxicology uses high-dose short-term exposure on various animals, to predict the effect of low-dose long-term exposure on humans.

This is exactly the risk in mattresses – low-dose long-term exposure.

Our mattresses are our last safe haven from the outside world, where we are intimate and lay with our newborn babes. We have full body skin and breathing contact with the new chemicals in our mattresses eight hours every day for the rest of our lives. For newborns, it will be from cradle to grave.

What other type of household or environmental chemical exposure could be worse?

Our Science of Toxicology gives us strong warning that the chemicals used to flameproof mattresses are incredibly toxic to people. Boric Acid, Antimony Oxide, and Formaldehyde are among the main chemicals being used.

How can the CPSC be so self-righteous to believe it can accurately predict the safely of these chemicals in mattresses for everyone?

If the CPSC guesses wrong, and millions of people die, its current leaders names will go down in history as killing more people than even Hitler.

Mattresses also pose other unique risks. Tossing and turning and sex agitate the mattress causing the air space inside the innerspring mattress, to force air and chemical through the surface. Urinary and menstrual accidents may also be a concern, as well as people with skin rashes, cuts, abrasions, sunburn, or Asthma, respiratory problems, or other impairments. As the mattress gets older the oils in the cotton that help hold the boric acid in place will dry out and release even more chemical.


If we have chemicals in our mattresses as well as upholstered furniture, the only time we won’t be exposed is while we are standing up.
