flame-retardant chemicals

Most Americans IGNORE This Household Risk

Dear Reader,

Thyroid cancer is more common than ever.

The numbers are off the charts but, of course, experts want us to believe it’s just a coincidence.

Rather than search for a cause, the National Institute of Health (NIH) is blaming “better detection”.

But that’s the easy answer. And it’s not the whole truth.

The reality is far more sinister – and it starts in our very own homes.

Since the 1970s, thyroid cancer diagnoses have more than tripled.

That number is truly alarming.

Of course, the government wants us to believe this is no big deal. They’re using the usual excuse, saying that it’s simply a matter of more sophisticated technology.

Luckily, some researchers from Duke University Medical Center aren’t buying it.

The team released their findings just a few weeks ago – and they had made an appalling discovery: the culprit has been in our homes, all along.

As it turns out, the flame-retardant chemicals that are found in the fibers from curtains, couches, carpets, and dozens of other household items could be causing the steady increase in instances of this disease.

We are literally lining our homes in cancer-causing fibers.

The toxins mix with the dust that settles on the surface of these products. And, as we inhale, we are then exposed to the cancerous properties found in the chemicals.

The Duke University study showed that those of us who live in homes with contaminated dust had more than four times the risk of not just thyroid cancer, but also a deadly type of tumor that has been linked to other types of cancer.

Researchers collected dust samples from the homes of 140 subjects – 70 who suffered from thyroid cancer and 70 who did not. Each subject had lived in their home for an average of 11 years.

The study showed that higher levels of dust including flame-retardants were associated with the test subjects suffering from thyroid cancer.

And the odds of a diagnosis doubled for those whose homes were high in BDE-209 dust. BDE-209 is commonly found in the plastic casings of older electronics and in upholstery covers. Therefore, it tends to affect the lives of those over the age of 65.

And history supports this evidence. The timelines line up almost perfectly. While household items began getting treated with flame-retardant chemicals, the number of thyroid cancer diagnoses simultaneously began to increase.

If you or your loved one is hanging on to old furniture or electronics, make sure to check labels and get rid of anything that contains flame-retardants.

Additionally, do not make any purchases that are labeled with the “technical bulletin 17”. This in an indicator that an item has been treated with flame-retardants.

And, of course, keep a dust free home. You can minimize exposure by avoiding lingering dust.
