Bio-Tag: Brominated Flame Retardants (BFRs)

"Brominated flame retardants cause health problems. CBS News investigates."

It needs to be said that there is significant controversy regarding the true dangers of BFRs. Here are a few links sharing different view points:

Greenpeace’s campaign against brominated flame retardants continues to ignore fire safety
Brominated Flame Retardants: Cause for Concern?
Brominated Flame Retardants Rising Levels of Concern

Bio-Tag raises awareness of dangerous toxins present in the physical environment through the deployment of searchable word “markers” made from natural materials. Hopefully, these typographic deployments will solicit a curiosity that will draw people into personal research and action. The motivation for these actions is to address the lack of public knowledge and the hopeful elimination of toxins that are present in food, the body, the home, and the environment. The scope of the project includes these toxin categories: Agricultural Toxins, Air Pollutants, Biological Contaminants, Carcinogens, Chemicals, Extremely Hazardous Substances, Microorganisms, Multimedia Pollutants, Ozone, Radiation, Soil Contaminants, Toxic Substances, and Water Pollutants. This is an ongoing project.
