Your mattress is likely killing you.

We spend 1/3rd of our lives laying on a comfortable cloud of toxic chemicals being absorbed by our bodies. Mattresses that are foam are made from a "witches brew" of petroleum byproducts. Synthetic latex mattresses such as, The Purple Mattress are coated in a white colored powder. This powder is a polyethylene based byproduct that Purple uses in their mattresses, pillows, and other products which feature their “Hyper Elastic Polymer.” Dust from polyurethane resin is highly toxic. Flame retardants are slowly being phased out because they can affect the nervous and reproductive system and more. An EPA report related to the risk evaluation process for HBCD, a type of flame retardant, references multiple studies finding potential effects on liver and thyroid function and the endocrine system.

For the vast majority of people fixing their diet is far more important than the chemicals in their mattress.

Yes, this is a real thing. I ditched my matress and bought a hemp one and is the best decision we made. Also our pillows now are filled w buckwheat husks.

Do you have a link to your mattress? My naturopath has asked me to get one of these:

Damn. Sleeping is like one of my favorite things. I bought a new hybrid mattress that is foam like 2 days ago. Even the reviews some mentioned the chemical smell.

Got any sources for that info?

The chemicals making up the mattresses aren't killing you. You're dirty ass is killing you. You're supposed to replace your mattress every 7 to 10 years. You're supposed to change and wash your sheets weekly. I bet 99% of people don't do either. Thats what killing you.

Your missing the point of what he’s saying.

Bought a 100% tallalay latex mattress about 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. It’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Maybe just get mattress protectors or something

I was just thinking this today. Time for a new mattress.

What have you noticed since switching?

Agreed. It's the modern day version of, let them eat petroleum.

I was just thinking about buying a Japanese futon, like literally about an hour ago while watching Anime.. funny this comes up now... Not like the folding couch but the mattress that you roll up when you're not using it.. basically the futon couch without the couch bit..

I wish it would hurry the fuck up.

I have thought in the past that coils in mattresses were suspect. I thought of Tesla coils and entertained the notion that the true purpose of the coils was to create an unhealthy EM field around the body. I see that foam mattresses are the next generation of mattress design and suspect that the toxic elements you noted are there intentionally as well.

In addition I think fads like My Pillow are similar to common pillows in that their chemical composition causes them to retain and even perhaps generate heat in order for the consumer to have a less restful nights sleep.

I haven't slept in a bed in years. I have two fairly thin square pillows that I lay on the ground.

If I get drunk enough I don't even use the pillows.

Your drinking problem is killing you!
