Dangers of Polyester
Besides being highly a highly-flammable material, polyester is composed of a host of known carcinogens. Continued contact with polyester puts one at a much greater risk for developing respiratory illness, cancer, contact dermatitis, and other ailments.
Environmental impact of Polyester
Many poly-fiber fabrics have been shown to be highly flammable, even some that are rated within current standards for fire safety. Several polymers used in poly-fiber production also contain a number of known-carcinogens that studies suggest increase the risk of cancer and respiratory illness with prolonged exposure.
