Dr. Mercola Introduces Chemical-Free Flame-Retardant Bedding Sets

Hoffman Estates, IL (PRWEB) September 25, 2014 – Everyone can now sleep a bit more comfortably, soundly, and safely, knowing that chemical-free, flame retardant bedding sets are now available through

Dr. Mercola’s American Wool and Silk-Filled Bedding Sets are made with non-synthetic materials. Traditional bedding can pose serious health risks because synthetic materials, including flame retardant chemicals, are typically added. These materials also don’t thermo-regulate the body properly (meaning one can easily get too hot).

An estimated 90% of Americans have some level of flame-retardant chemicals in their bodies, according to a recent national study. The flame retardants in furniture and bedding don’t just "stay put;” they migrate out, and collect in house dust – eventually making their way into your blood.

Plus, flame-retardant chemicals also produce more toxic smoke when they burn. Firefighters are at higher health risks, partly due to their exposure to high levels of dioxins and furans that are released when flame retardant chemicals burn.

Dr. Mercola’s bedding is made of wool and silk, which are naturally flame resistant; no flame retardant chemicals, such as PBDEs, are ever used.
