Children's Car Seat Tests Reveal Harmful Chemicals, a project of the environmental non-profit The Ecology Center, found "chemicals of concern" in 60% of the more than 150 seats tested, including brominated flame retardants, arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury. tested for the chemicals of concern based on studies showing links to reproductive problems, developmental and learning disabilities, hormone imbalances and cancer.

We have spoken about such chemicals before, especially arsenic, due to its implication in crib death. For more information about which car seats are harmful and which are safer, visit HealthyStuff now.
