Brominated Flame Retardants in Dust on Computers

2004 McPherson, Thorpe, Blake CPA Publications

In 2004 the first nationwide tests for brominated flame retardants in dust swiped from computers  in public buildings in 8 US states, revealed that computers are likely to be a significant source of deca-BDE  and other brominated flame retardant chemical exposure in the dust of homes, offices, schools, and businesses. There is evidence that these chemicals could be hazardous to human health and even the World Health Organization recommends their substitution.
