However, the main danger may be the higher density of PDBEs used to assist in preventing combustion in memory foam mattresses. PDBEs accumulating in the body are just like banned PCBs, and they have been associated with cancer and other ailments. PDBEs have already been banned in Europe but not in North America. Some medical researchers feel, that the extra load of PDBEs in the newly made mattresses can cause millions of cancer cases in the coming decades. As you lie directly on your mattress for 8 hours every night, your body is in complete contact with the dangerous PDBEs while sleeping, as they pass right through your skin.
If the old bed is not in decent enough shape to be donated and the customer wants to avoid adding to the local landfill, alternative uses for used mattresses abound, especially for the materials that they are made of. Fasteners and buttons can be removed from the old item and given to sewers and crafters for repurposing. The foam padding and cotton and poly-fill batting can be removed and used to re-stuff couch cushions or to use in new pillows. These are the materials that make up the comfort layers of the mattress, and also make good packing materials.
The problem is not in you or your body; you are probably using your mattress for a longer period of time. Our bodies change over time, as we change our lifestyle and we all need something firmer and supportive. Despite the new technologies and the variety of natural materials and innovations in the process of mattresses production, we do not replace them frequently enough, even it is obvious how uncomfortable and saggy our mattress is.
Finally, this brings us to the boxspring. Stearns and Foster say they still firmly believe that one should buy a 'complete sleep set', meaning they want you to buy not only the mattress but also the boxspring to accompany it. They claim it will give even better support and add more durability to the mattress.
