Half of them tested positive for bromine, “suggesting widespread use” of brominated flame retardants; these are suspected of a range of threats to health, and the bromine itself can cause pollution when disposed of as waste.
our items also tested positive for antimony, a toxic mineral often used with flame retardants, and others contained very small amounts of chromium and lead. Chlorine was found in the plastic coating of the headphone cables, indicating the presence of PVC.

    Find Out What the Bible REALLY Says About the End Times . . . and Why It Matters Today

    “Most of what you’ve heard, read or been told about the End Times is wrong,” says popular radio host and bestselling apologist, Hank Hanegraaff. “We have come to accept a wide range of beliefs and teachings about the future, about the ultimate battle between good and evil, about the last days, and about how our world will end. And most of these beliefs and teachings are based on fundamental misinterpretations of what the scriptures really say about the end times.”

    ANTI-CANCER COMPOUND IN BEER GAINING INTEREST

    CORVALLIS, Ore. – A compound found only in hops and the main product
    they are used in – beer – has rapidly gained interest as a
    micronutrient that might help prevent many types of cancer.

    Researchers at Oregon State University first discovered the
    cancer-related properties of this flavonoid compound called xanthohumol
    about 10 years ago. A recent publication by an OSU researcher in the
    journal Phytochemistry outlines the range of findings made since then.
    And many other scientists in programs around the world are also
    beginning to look at the value of these hops flavonoids for everything
    from preventing prostate or colon cancer to hormone replacement therapy
    for women.
