On 7 April 2017 Reuters reported:
Two toxic chemicals banned in the U.S. in 2005 are still finding their way into the bloodstreams of California women, suggesting that sources of exposure persist in homes and in the environment, researchers say. The flame retardant chemicals called Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers, or PBDEs, were used to treat polyurethane foam, hard plastics, textiles, glues, and wire insulation, among other products, until 2006 in the U.S. They were banned a few years earlier in Europe.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.

. . . PBDEs aren't easily broken down in the environment, Hurley noted, so they eventually find their way into the food chain. [Lead author Susan Hurley told Reuters Health in an email]
'While the commercial formulations containing these particular chemicals have been banned, they have been replaced with similar compounds whose health effects are not yet fully understood,' Hurley noted.
