What is health to Oprah? Does she know about environmental toxins? Is she clueless or is it too taboo to discuss?
Chemicals are in everything these days including mattresses. Mattresses similar to the ones Oprah promoted on her show are known to emit up to 61 chemicals including the carcinogens benzene and naphthalene.
Yes it’s comfortable but is it truly healthy?
It’s weird how Bob Greene, Oprah and her team only took comfort into account and NOT overall health. The mattress they gave away on Oprah today is healthy in terms of comfort and a better nights sleep but memory foam is known to be hazardous to your health.
Issues with mattresses like Tempur-Pedic’s are well known. Is spending 8 hours/night on a mattress that emits VOC’s healthy?
How does Bob Greene not know this?
Guess this whole environmental toxin thing isn’t mainstream…..
The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling for less chemicals. Heck, even Yahoo.com had a list of top 10 environmental toxins to avoid in 2009!
Maybe Mercola’s a little to underground but there’s no excuse when WashingtonPost.com, Time.com, NationalGeographic.com, ScientificAmerican.com along with every single publication in circulation wrote on the subject in the last 10 years.
We’ll now have parents buying these “Oprah approved” mattresses for their kids. So Sad.
Her people should have known natural memory foam mattresses existed 😉
