There is growing concern among physicians, health professionals, public safety officials, environmental advocacy groups, and consumers regarding the possible effects of chemicals on our bodies. Many researchers suspect that toxic chemicals are playing a significant role in the dramatic increase in cancers and other illnesses, placing an impossible burden on our immune systems. Your bedroom, and mattress in particular, should be a safe haven for rejuvenation, not another source of chemicals.
Adults typically spend 6-9 hours a day sleeping and relaxing on their mattress. Since the mattress is in such close proximity to our bodies and the air we breathe for such a prolonged period of time, it can easily become a significant source of chemical exposure. In fact, every breath while sleeping is no more than six inches away from these chemicals. Conventional mattresses are notorious for releasing chemicals like VOCs and aldehydes, making an organic mattress a smart choice.
