Check out this video about how flame retardants are potentially harmful to humans. I wrote about this awhile ago when I discussed organic crib mattresses.
Want to do a little something about it?
A recent study conducted by the watchdog group, Friends of the Earth, found that 56% of infant carriers, 44% of car seats, and 40% of the strollers they tested had dangerous levels of toxic fire retardant chemicals. Graco (the maker of one of the safest car seats around) is considering removing these chemicals from their products.

My infant is going to have to deal with a flame retardant filled car seat because right now I have no other options. Hopefully, we can get this problem solved in a timely fashion so I can get a car seat without these chemicals when he grows out of this one.
