The “F” Words in Conventional Bedding
It’s an unfortunate reality that the majority of conventional bedding is laden with chemicals that cause harm to people, pets and the planet. Besides the fact that 25 percent of the world’s insecticides are sprayed on cotton, here are some additional health risks, or “F” words, found in traditional linens and bedding:
The majority of people are not washing their bedding regularly, not replacing their pillows every two years, or using the correct pillow. Rather, most people are sleeping with a variety of uninvited slumber party guests including: dust mites, bacteria and fungi. Don’t know about you, but that’s not our kind of party.
Recent studies show that an average synthetic pillow is home to millions of fungal spores. These are the same biological contaminants responsible for triggering asthma and allergies. In addition, your bedding creates a breeding ground for dust mites that feed off your dead skin cells and breed in the moisture you lose while sleeping. Those people allergic to dust mites literally continue the cycle, night after night.
Yes, formaldehyde is from your science class, was used in embalming the deceased by the Egyptians and has somehow found its way into your home and bedding. As an inexpensive preservative, formaldehyde is used in pillows, textile, and other products to keep the fabrics from wrinkling. Think about ‘wrinkle-free,’ ‘easy-care’ and ‘no-iron’ labels and avoid anything with this label and look instead for organic certifications.
Exposure to formaldehyde is toxic to your health. If you’re waking up fatigued or experiencing lingering headaches when hitting the pillow or upon rising, this can be an acute symptoms of formaldehyde exposure. Did I mention formaldehyde is a carcinogen, a cancer-causing agent? Yeah, kind of important.
