How toxic are chemical mattresses?
Some are made of very toxic chemicals that we don’t think should be next to a person’s body, or be breathed in, as these synthetic materials off-gas for eight hours every night. We are not scientists or experts in this area. If you want to know more, please visit the EPA website at www.epa.gov and look up the risks for some chemicals. Chemicals typically found in mattresses include formaldehyde, antimony, styrene, butadiene, various PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), toluene di-isocyante (TDI), and other glues and adhesives.
