Advance Warning

This film surrounds one of the most explosive stories ever regarding the use of a specific group of toxic chemicals. Flame retardants are everywhere, and most unfortunately, they are inside of your house right now as well. They are used in all kinds of products, and many of those are completely unnecessary. Beginning in the 1970’s, the tobacco industry directly and indirectly happened to influence the prevalence of these chemicals to become as American as Apple Pie. Through their decades of use, and our potential exposures all over the globe, these chemicals are now found in every single life form on the planet.  This film explores how all of this happened, and where we go from here.
