Cancer is one of the most widespread diseases in the world today. With the people of the nation getting more and more accustomed to the disease with the passing days, it must be noted that cancer causes harm to a person in all the ways possible.

Scientists have also failed to come up with concrete evidence of what exactly is the cause of cancer.
A New Addition To The List Of Things That Causes Cancer
However, they have noted down a few sources with their researches on the field. The latest inclusion in the list of the materials that cause cancer are the fancy sofas. According to researchers, the fancy sofas that use fire retardant chemicals are found to cause thyroid cancer. Researches have indicated that chemicals like decaBDE are linked to 74% spike in deadly cancer over the decades.
Heather Stapleton, who will be set to present her findings at a conference in New York in the coming month said that the chemicals used in these sofas are released as household dust and get into our body through our food and the various daily life activity. This has caused great harm to the children. According to the researchers, who have researched on this particular field, they found out that people who were exposed to decaBDE had significant high chances of getting the disease, as compared to those that are kept aloof of the same.
The lady further said that although the US had changed the sofa flammability laws almost two years ago, UK is still stuck up with the same set of laws that it had. She said that the UK faces higher hazards from the same, even more than what the US faced.
Well, with the passing years, cancer is becoming one of the most traumatic diseases. With no cure what so ever, the disease is claiming more life than it has ever had in the past and poses a threat to the entire humanity.
