Table of Toxic Chemicals Absorbed from Flameproof Mattresses, from the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC):


CPSC Table 16, from Tab D, p 45
From Page 45, http://www.cpsc.gov/library/foia/foia06/brief/matttabd.pdf

In the table above ADD is Average Daily Dose. You can see above that CPSC calculations show we will absorb a daily dose of .802 mg of Antimony, .081 mg of Boric Acid, and .073 DBDPO.

ADI is the CPSC assumptions of Acceptable Daily Intake. The CPSC concludes this amount of poison absorption is safe for everyone, But other agencies disagree, including the ATSDR, CDC, and EPA.

Please consider the facts. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) Jan-06 Risk Assessment of Flameproof Mattresses really does say we will absorb a daily dose of toxins from flameproof mattresses of: .802 mg Antimony, .081 mg Boric Acid, .073 mg DBDPO. (Please check CPSC Table 16 yourself.) The CPSC extraction studies prove mattresses contain a large amount and percentage of these toxins to make them flameproof. (CPSC Table 1) CPSC migration studies prove these toxins leach through our sheets to be absorbed by our bodies. The above calculations of our daily poison absorption are based on CPSC assumptions of us absorbing only 2/1,000ís per hour, or 16/1,000ís per day, of the chemical that has reached the surface of our mattresses, and the area that is in contact with our bodies.


The independent review of the risk assessment, required by law, found many problems that were not answered by the CPSC. The CPSC concludes the above amounts of poison absorption are safe for everyone, except children under age five, who they excluded from their risk assessment by assuming all these children would be protected by a vinyl sheet over their mattresses, due to bedwetting problems. The independent reviewer complained repeatedly that the CPSC assumptions of our safe levels of chemical absorption do not agree with those published by other agencies. For instance, the CPSC assumption of 2.3 mg of Antimony being safe is 5,750 higher than the EPA published safe number of .0004 mg. If you use the EPA number in CPSC safety factor calculations it proves these mattresses exceed toxic levels by 27.5 times. Crib and youth mattresses are also required to be flameproof. There are no labeling requirements of the toxic chemicals used to flameproof mattresses. People will never know their or their childrenís mattresses contain toxic and cancer causing chemicals, and that they are absorbing a daily dose of poisons.
