By Federal law, ANY AND ALL mattresses manufactured and sold in the United States must pass a flame test. Under the law, a mattress must be subjected to a flame for 70 seconds before it ignites. How this is achieved varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but most manufacturers achieve this by using chemicals. These chemicals (Boric acid, Antimony and Decabromodiphenyl Oxide) are the same chemicals that have been banned in Europe for years and the same chemicals that are used in pesticides to kill roaches and have been linked to reproductive and developmental diseases, heart and lung damage, hair and memory loss, SIDS, birth defects, skin irritation and are believed to be carcinogens. Continued exposure to these chemicals cause accumulation in the body and present themselves in breast milk, the blood stream and in umbilical cord fluids.
Sufferers of spinal stenosis experience pain, cramping or numbness in the back, legs, arms, and shoulders and function better in a flexed or loose position. Therefore, a slightly softer mattress works better for them. The most common back pain complaint is lower back pain. Usually people experience an aching dull pain in the center of the lower back. A clinical study out of Spain showed that a medium firm mattress is generally better at relieving chronic back pain than a firmer model. However, there isn’t one single style of mattress that works best for everyone with lower back pain.
When we buy clothes, we do not only chose between trousers or jackets, we also choose the right size and want it to fit well around the body. Just like we would not purchase trousers that are too small or too big, we should also stop buying mattresses that do not suit/fit our bodies. The wide variety of choice of mattresses might confuse people and it is not always that obvious which mattress is the right choice. It is therefor very important that we are aware of our own possible sleeping problems. Once you know what your sleep weaknesses are you can find the perfect mattress. If you do not experience any problems, it is still advisable to purchase a mattress that is healthy for you to help prevent the development of any future problems.
