Cancer Doubles Using Common Jaw-Dropping Product: New Research

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Deborah Dupré

Research is proving that an invisible monster is lurking in the dark where people sleep. Mounting medical evidence, including from new research shows a link between a “safety product” that Americans use and today’s alarming rise of a type of cancer, especially among older American women. Heads up baby-boomer women. The culprit?  Common flame retardants in bedding. Products inhaled with every breath every day and even more so at night. People with high exposures to flame retardant BDE-209 were twice more likely to develop thyroid cancer compared with those with lower exposure. No wonder people who can afford it – or have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer are going for nothing but organic bedding. ( At Home Naturally)

“Thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing cancer in the U.S., with most of the increase in new cases being papillary thyroid cancer,” reports Sherry Beall of At Home Naturally.

“Fire retardant chemicals used in your mattress is linked to 74% rise in thyroid cancer tumors.”

An analysis of dust samples from homes of 140 participants showed that people with a high exposure to flame retardant BDE-209 were twice more likely to develop thyroid cancer compared with those who had lower exposure.

Even more alarming, data also showed that participants exposed to high levels of TCEP had a fourfold increased odds of developing larger, more aggressive tumors.

“Recent studies suggest more environmental factors may, in part, be responsible for this increase…  Our study results suggest that higher exposure to several flame retardants in the home environment may be associated with the diagnosis and severity of papillary thyroid cancer, potentially explaining some of the observed increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer,” said lead researcher Dr. Julie Ann Sosa in an article in

The researchers presented the above findings at the annual Endocrine Society Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Another study revealed that women exposed to flame retardants were at an increased risk of suffering thyroid conditions. Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health pooled data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and found that women exposed to toxic flame retardants were more likely to develop adverse thyroid conditions compared with men. The study also showed that women with the highest blood concentrations of flame retardants were at an increased risk of thyroid problems.

Older women had a twofold increased risk of thyroid problems, the researchers added. These findings were published in the journal Environmental Health. Both studies were published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Not only flame retardants need to be avoided. Plastic, pizza boxes, popcorn flavoring – that doctors say is worse than cigarettes, microwave radiation….

Do you have thyroid cancer signs?

Many doctors are warning patients to become well informed before seeking medical help for a possible thyroid issue.

      This should have come out years ago, before these substances even went on the market. Those responsible for lax texting need to be prosecuted.

      • Deborah Dupre

        Exactly Dr. Brown. More of corporate-government’s slow quiet genocide. Let’s hope that lawsuit is in progress. Seems Erin Brokovich would be all over this.

    • Man

      highest blood concentrations of flame retardants.

      high is not a number

    • Pink Slime

      Yes, yes! Don’t breathe when you sleep. :lol:

        Might be cute and humorous, Pinky, if fire retardants hadn’t been linked to babies stopping to breathe – Sudden Infant Death Syndrome – or Cot Syndrome or Crib Death – the number one cause of infant deaths:

        Dr. James Sprott, OBE, a New Zealand scientist and chemist, says crib death is caused by poisoning – toxic gases that can be produced from a baby’s mattress. He says chemical compounds containing phosphorus, arsenic and antimony have been added to mattresses as fire retardants and for other purposes since the early 1950’s.

        Now check this out: A fungus that commonly grows in bedding can interact with those chemicals to create poison — poisonous gases (Richardson 1994). These heavier-than-air gases are concentrated in a thin layer on the baby’s mattress or are diffused away and dissipated into the surrounding atmosphere. If, however, a baby breathes or absorbs a lethal dose of the gases, the central nervous system shuts down and that, in turn, first stops breathing and then heart function. Those gases can fatally poison a sleeping baby — without waking the baby and without any struggle by the baby. A normal autopsy would not reveal any sign that the baby was poisoned (Sprott 1996).

        ElPolacko – With unregulated corporations running amuck due to conservatives refusing to admit how dangerous that is, humanity – especially Americans don’t need any stinkin’ Agenda 21 for genocide.

        • ElOregonian

          Deborah, that is awfully small minded to single out only “Conservatives” as culprits when it comes to allowing corporations to run amok wreaking havoc upon its citizens with impunity. I believe that BOTH groups (Democrats AND Republicans) have allowed corporations to overtake governments by inducing those same watch-dog government regulators to come and work for them at huge premiums and signing bonuses, it becomes a revolving door between gov’t and private corporation positions (Cronyism). This same “Sweetheart” deal exists in the media/news networks/foundations.

          It is prevalent in both parties with an equal amount of culpability between them. Deborah, I admire the majority of your work but I would caution against letting your preconceived bias overtake the reality of what our malignant political system has morphed into one Frankenstein entity, stitched together, and controlled behind the scenes by madmen.

          I wish it were different, that there were still principled individuals in Washington D.C. but sadly, it is not the case.

          • Deborah Dupre

            Yes, El. Thank you. I get what you’re saying. Surely, however, you agree that historically, the conservative agenda has been far more corporatist-driven rather than public service-driven. That’s just fact, El. Conservatives have historically supported the war for profit machine, fighting the progressives for it. I’m simply stating facts. Surely you know history well enough to know that.

            Then the Bush regime topped it all. Deregulation, violating international laws by his wars of aggression for profit, his fake 9/11 acts for NWO cabal profit and control of the people…. Then along came Obama, a second part of the Bush regime so much so, it is commonly called the Bush-Obama regime. Obama continued leading on the same abusive path – illegal wars of aggression against innocent nations for obscene profits while the American public did without.

            And now? The corporate-government king with his multi-millionaires leading everything, due to profit more than any others in history. So, he’s a Republican. It doesn’t matter anymore whether dem or republican leadership. They’ve become one in the same corporatist-government: crooked as the day is long, personal/corporate profiting as much as possible while they can – at the literal demise of innocent civilians – and yes, El – all supported by the main brains-washing machine, mainstream media.

            • ElOregonian

              25 years of wars under both parties. Just as President Eisenhower in his 1961 farewell speech to congress, in it he warned that the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) needed to be brought under subjection. Just as Eisenhower warned the MIC has brought this nation under continuous wars in order to fill the coffers of the Defense Industry.

              ‘By hook or by crook’ (false flags etc.) it has not mattered who, or what political affiliation the presidential incumbent ascribed to, Democrat or Republican, has been led to war by these very same warmongers.

              Unfortunately, we are still suffering under both parties through this unwinnable “War on Terror” which is guaranteed to be fought in perpetuity just as the “War on Drugs” or the “War on Poverty”. None were designed to succeed but to be an endless cash-cow enriching those that promote these wars, and further enslaving the citizens by creating “New Laws” (i.e. Patriot Act; Republican) or “Obamacare” (i.e. mandatory participation under penalty of fines and/or imprisonment; Democrat)

              The color of their ties (Red, or Blue) is now the only difference between them, in my humble opinion.

    • DangerWillRoberson

      there are 80,00 compounds not listed on the index of shit humans are poisoned with currently there are hundreds of compounds banned in most of the world used in US manufacturing food home products!

      its called Eugenic courtesy of your local ford foundation rockefeller foundation! Hitler sent nazi’s to the us to study this and how we killed off most american indians! now with 70 millions murdered babies and sodomy marriage we can now claim we are Sodom 2017! oh thanks heaven for 7/11!

      • Deborah Dupre

        Danger – It is indeed eugenics courtesy of Nazis. Who can afford organics – products without poisons? Mainly white people. Certainly not poor people of color. They get poisoned.

        • BEEF SUPREME

          When organic produce comes across the US southern border with Mexico, that produce is forthwith flooded with a multitude of poisonous (anti-bacterial/microbial and pesticide) compounds and then sold with the organic label.

          Domestic organic nuts can be pelted with radiation (to kill ‘harmful’ critters) and yet maintain their USDA Organic Certification. Only raw non-irradiated nuts may be assumed to be free from intentional radiation poisoning, but raw non-irradiated nuts are boucoup bucks.

          Basically, be rich or grow our own food.

          Those are the good choices.

          The other choices, not so good.


      This is an easy one to prevent.

      Just don’t ever sleep again.
