Study: Increased levels of flame retardants found in children and adults
According to a study recently released by Duke University, EWG and other universities, the level of flame retardants in the bodies of adults and children has increased drastically between 2002 and 2015. According to the study, levels of chlorinated Tris, or TDCIPP, rose fifteen fold in adults while levels in children were found to have increased four times in that same time frame. While this isn’t the first time levels of flame retardants in humans has been researched, this study marks the first time the outcomes have revealed such dramatic shifts over a long period of time.
Flame retardants are used in everyday products to slow or stop the spread of fire. They’re commonly found in car seats, upholstered furniture, televisions, computers, clothing, baby toys and much more. While not all flame retardants are harmful, and there are Federal guidelines designed to limit the amount of the chemical in products, overexposure can be harmful to humans. That's because they have been linked to health challenges such as cancer, hormonal changes and even cause fertility issues.
