Mattress witha teddy bear on it

What my mattress taught me about toxic chemicals

December 22, 2020

I did not realize the health risks of products until I bought a mattress that arrived on Valentine’s Day in 2007. I have had underlying neurological health conditions caused by growing up near a Superfund site as a child.  But nothing has impacted my health like the chemicals I was exposed to from sleeping on that mattress.
