And 30-40 years ago, someone just like this idiot was demanding new laws requiring these flame retardants.
Yep! And that was despite the fact that for over 150 years, children survived just fine while wearing long cotton nightgowns in a home with candles for light and open hearths for heat!
Oh! How DID we manage to survive without granny government to protect us? [rolls eyes]
I remember when they started this flame-retardant nonsense. There was a woman pushing it because her child played with matches or a lighter while he was in his pajamas.
Very sad for that kid and for her, but why did everyone else’s kid have to suffer because her child’s misfortune.
I never really considered the carcinogenic properties of the fire retardant, but I can remember buying sweat shirts and sweat pants to use as pj’s for my boys because those flame-retardant pajamas just did not feel comfortable.
