Book Description

We spend one-third of our lives in bed, and that’s just when sleeping! Yet most of us haven’t given thought to the toxic chemicals in our mattresses that we breathe in all night, or absorb through our skin. The bedroom should be a safe haven, but unfortunately more and more research reveals the bedroom may be one of the most toxic places in the home. Consider the average conventional mattress contains more toxic chemicals than a 50 gallon oil drum, and our skin, the largest organ of the body, is also the most porous entry point. It’s no wonder chemicals found in mattresses, known to cause toxic reproductive effects, are regularly found at significant levels in human blood samples. Walter Bader outlines the dangers of the variety of toxic threats lurking in the typical American bedroom so that, armed with this knowledge, you can defend yourself and your family against them

Editorial Reviews


"Rarely do we get the opportunity to make our lives far less toxic with so little effort. Please, make the non-toxic choice today, and like me, you will sleep safe and rest easy." -- Ed Begley, Jr., actor and environmental activist

"... reminds us of the health risks we face every day from environmental toxins and shocks us with their proximity. This book will open your eyes to better choices that will steer you towards a safer, healthier lifestyle." -- David Steinman, Diet for A Poisoned Planet

About the Author

Having been chemically sensitive his whole life,Walt Bader is intimately aware of the chemical challenges that bombard us on a daily basis. His continual quest has been to find safer alternatives for the everyday products that he uses, and by so doing, to avoid the health risks associated with products that are routinely made with chemicals. In 1995, he decided to share these products with others and co-founded Lifekind®, Inc., a national catalog company specializing in organic and Naturally Safer® product alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Health risks of sleeping on a chemical mattress July 28, 2011
By Jeff
Recently a friend gave me the book, "Sleep Safe in a Toxic World" by Walter Bader. She knew I was looking for a mattress for my three-year-old son. I am so glad I read this book, as I had no idea about the health risks of mattresses made with synthetic, non organic materials. I also was disappointed to learn that the mattress I was originally considering purchasing contained flame-retardants with known carcinogens. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to educate themselves about the health risks of sleeping on a chemical mattress. It's an easy, worthwhile read, filled with really important information!

By Melissa
I am amazed that such a scientific, fact-filled book is also so easy to read! It's appalling how toxic mattresses can be and the seemingly endless "greenwashing" is no help. "Sleep Safe in a Toxic World" has not only boosted my knowledge but my confidence as well, I know now what questions to ask and which verifications are legitimate. This is my new favorite reference book in my effort to lead a less toxic life for my family and myself.

This book gives a good picture of what is inside mattresses and other bedding and bedroom items. I had pretty much decided on an OMI organic mattress before purchasing the book. And the book confirmed my decision.
