As summer temperatures begin to climb, a new layer of concern is heating up for drivers. According to a recent study by the American Chemical Society, the foam in vehicle seats contains flame retardants that may pose a significant health risk by releasing potentially cancer-causing chemicals, particularly during the hotter months.

This alarming research, which found that 99% of cars tested emitted toxic fumes as temperatures rose, has led researchers to call for urgent regulatory changes to eliminate the use of flame retardants in cars, aiming to minimize the exposure and subsequent health risks. These chemicals, commonly found in products ranging from furniture to electronics and mattresses, are now under scrutiny for their safety in our everyday environments.
