After testing air quality in 200 of the most popular cars in 2011, researchers found high concentrations of more than 275 chemicals associated with birth defects, learning impairment, liver toxicity and cancer.
Indoor air pollution has been declared by the World Health Organization to be a leading cause of cancer deaths, and due to the confined nature of car interiors, and exposure to high heat, a study by The Ecology Center found concentrations of chemicals lurking inside cars as much as Read more [...]
If you are sleeping on bed sheets that are not organic, then every night your body is being exposed to an assortment of carcinogenic chemicals like formaldehyde, bleach, ammonia, and heavy metals. This burden of chemicals, absorbed through the skin and lungs, will accumulate in your body until one day it is no longer able to deal with it, and disease will result.
An estimated 8000 chemicals are used to transform raw materials into fabric. "Often, the clippings from fabric mills are so loaded with Read more [...]

The point needs repeating: Outdoor air pollution is a leading cause of cancer, and indoor air can be 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Americans spend up to 90% Read more [...]

Here's a sign that Teflon coating could cause serious health problems: It gives off fumes that kill birds! Veterinarians call it "Teflon Toxicosis" and it happens because birds develop powerful respiratory reactions to Teflon fumes.
Teflon Bird Fatality Reports:
When a Teflon-lined oven was used to bake biscuits at 325 degrees Fahrenheit, an owner reported the death of his parrots.
When four stovetop burners lined with Teflon drip pans were preheated for a meal, 14 birds died within15 Read more [...]
