Format: Paperback
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!

Format: Paperback
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.
