Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are a type of flame retardant. Flame retardants are chemicals that slow the spread of fire, reduce costly damage caused by fire and save lives.
There are 3 main types of PBDEs: PentaBDE, OctaBDE and DecaBDE.
Brock has been cancer free for over a decade, thanks to the support we received from the Canadian Cancer Society.
