Cats and Kids Exposed To Flame Retardants Years After They Have Been Banned — 1 Comment

  1. GOOD CALL! Cats are constantly licking their fur, which accumulates all the dust from areas they lay on. I have worried about when my cats roll around outdoors on the grass and in the dirt what with all the chemicals out there, and so I often take a wash cloth to them. It’s another good reason to keep them indoors, except that as this article states, fire retardants are found in a lot of man-made products. Another good call on the “thyroidisms”! That would be a good study to do. About a third of my cats have had a thyroid disorder. Cat food is another likely potential for poison, and now we have a dismantling of our protections here in the U.S. due to this last election, for what good they were to begin with. Whew, sorry for the rant.
