Last of the 11 recommendations! Mattresses

Last but not least this is the 11th recommendation.
It is time to splurge a little!  You spend a 1/3 of your time on this thing from sleeping to......well ya know!  You don't realize what it is you are absorbing through your skin and inhaling.  I am not talking bed bugs here folks but you guessed it, chemicals.

PBDE: Polybrominated diphenyl is a fire retardant on your mattresses, couches, and carpet.  They have been linked to learning disorders, behavioral disorders and memory issues.

I think if you can not purchase the organic or all natural version then you need a barrier between you and the mattress.  Find an encapsulated/zippered mattress cover and while you are at it cover your box spring.  I do this at home and found my mattress and box spring look brand new plus you prevent bed bugs.
