The state House passed a ban on additional flame retardants in household items and children's products. Lawmakers also created a system to stop chemical companies from switching to yet another version deemed just as bad.

Wow, it seems not that long ago that the nanny press was all agog about how children’s cloths weren’t fire resistant and because the garment industry didn’t want to spend the money on fire retardants hundreds of children every year were killed or maimed.

And if all of these cats have hyperthyroidism why is this the first I have heard of it. I know a lot of cat owners and never a peep.

My vet brought this up to me years ago when my cat was diagnosed with HyperT.

I have hypothyroidism and I don’t remember rubbing up against fire retardants. My retired firefighter hubby doesn’t count, right? ;o)
