Thanks for this important article Nancy. We the consumers have it all laid on us when we buy, as everything we buy is not as it seems. Particularly important when children may have contact. I know I never would have thought that my kid's pajamas were not fire retardant, then it was some of their toys, and on and on we go.The still get away with selling this stuff, which makes me see red!!!

Well, we are doing what we can.

Alone we can do almost nothing.

Together we can save our planet for our children and our grandchildren.

And we are!

This too will pass but soul is forever. No matter what happens, we'll know we did what we could. But, I say
when we gather to dance around our victory fire, we will be so glad we were part of the team that rescued
Earth.

We are the Rainbow Warriors.

So maybe human combustion is possible too? Just saying with all the chemicals in food, water, clothing and furniture - why not? How many convenience and fast foods have flame retardants in them. Does anyone know?

I bet the company making the flame retardant is upset about this and would insist that it's perfectly safe, blah blah blah. Gladly signed.
