Re: E-M:/ Fw: EU Lawmakers Vote Broad Fire Retardant Ban
Who in Michigan can forget the fact the fire retardant PBB was
accidentally added to feed in the 1973 near Midland Michigan? Every
living creature who ate meat or drank milk produced here in 1973 and 1974
have measurable amounts of this in their systems. I was pregnant
and delivered during this time. My son was announced ADHD by the
age of two. A relationship? don't know.

The Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) are found in

build up to significant levels in biota. Now, the European Union
has voted to ban some of these chemicals, which are used as fire
retardants, among other things.
Here is the link to the story.
