This is the question Brynn asked me today. You see, a few years ago Brynn and I participated in a study run by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). They tested our blood for toxins from fire-retardant materials like what's in our sofa and in the padding under our carpet. Brynn's toxicity level was much higher than mine which was, I think, a predictable result.
Every once in a while, Brynn will ask me about the study. Maybe she was traumatized by the two viles of blood they took out of her. Her question today reminded me that I should tell you about the study, as the findings are (finally) being released tomorrow and will be reported in the local and national media, including on the Today Show (sorry, fans of Good Morning America) at about 9:15AM. If Ann Curry does the story I might not be able to watch. Anyway, if you are around a television tomorrow morning or if you have access to Tivo, you might want to catch that segment. Once the results are officially released, you will be able to access the details of the study at the EWG's website. For now, they're only available to a select few (including yours truly). I can tell you that our results are accompanied by a cute photo of us! Or, at least Brynn looks cute.
Update: here's a link to the Today Show segment, and a link to more information about the study.
