Is the Dust on Your TV Dangerous?

November 01, 2010

Did you know that many electronics contain a flame retardant composed of polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE’s)?

When plastic in the TV heats up, toxins are released and settle into house dust, where they are breathed in.  Some kids even ingest them from hand-to-mouth. 

Newer TV’s may be PBDE-free, but if you have an older television set, dust it regularly with a damp cloth.  This will help trap dust particles.
