Is vinyl a bad thing for babies?

    Vinyl (also called PVC) is bad for everyone when in close contact, especially babies, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems. When you first purchase vinyl it “gasses off”, which means you smell vinyl for a while (little particles of it are getting into your lungs). Below is a link about the dangers of vinyl baby mattresses. Lead has also been found in vinyl baby products. Not only is vinyl toxic to humans (it is an EPA recognized carcinogen), it releases toxic gas when put into landfills, which will end up in groundwater.
