javascript:; Are You Paying Too Much for Your Carcinogens? | Coal Tar Free America

Dollar for Dollar, What's Your Best Bet For Cost-Effective Carcinogens?

No one wants to spend too much money on things around the house. We all want to get the most out of our cash today.

But are you spending too much for your carcinogens? Yeah you could get a lot of them free in the air, near some factories or by swimming in some waters. But isn't it more American to own them, where you can be exposed whenever you want, as much as you want and you won't have to worry about someone taking them away?

It's hard to know, with confusing labels, scientific terms, and missing information where to begin.

That's why we pulled together this information on some of the top carcinogens available in the marketplace today to help.

We looked at the following 5 common products around the home to see which was the most cost-effective way to get your carcinogens. If you're not familiar with the toxicity of these products or their ingredients, follow the links provided.
By the way, only 2 of the 5 have large quantities in the typical American home. Both are mobile and frequently found in the dust in your house. They are:

  • flame retardants (about 2 pounds for every sofa and in most foam) and 
  • coal tar sealcoat which adds about 3 pounds of coal tar (a known human carcinogen) for every 1000 square feet of driveway.
