Flame Retardant Chemicals chemicals may cause liver, thyroid, and neurodevelopmental toxicity, according to the EPA. In addition, research has not shown that adding these types of chemicals can produce the intended benefit of saving lives, particularly compared to other interventions such as state laws requiring fire-safe cigarettes which extinguish rapidly when left unattended.
How nice of EPA to provide this study now since all cigarettes use flame retardant paper. The fight has gotten so vicious they don’t want us to quit, they want us dead. Who pushed this legislation? The American Cancer Society.
