Good night, sleep tight…don’t let the bed bugs bite. But, a bed bug may be the least of your worries as you lay down to sleep with your spouse, your pet, your child – or even a dust mite. Rather, we are talking about a sinister culprit cohabitating your residence each day, night after night – chemicals called hormone disruptors including brominated fire retardants such as PBDE’s. NBC’s Dateline recently featured an expose on three additional hormone disrupting chemicals that the vast majority of us are living and sleeping with each day.
