The EPA is reclassifying coal fly ash from post industrial use, to post consumer use. They are saying since coal was burnt up to make us electricity, the consumer can now be given the leftovers, the toxic fly ash, as a recycled product to use in our homes, rather than let the toxic waste just sit there, and perhaps poison a creek.
Coal Fly Ash Home Products
The concern for me is that the more surface area, the more porous a product, the more likely it is to off gas dangerous chemicals and toxins, especially mercury. Mercury is an incredibly volatile element, add a lot of surface area to it like in the case of carpet backing, and then add the friction of people walking on it, and we have a real problem. No one that I have found is measuring how much mercury is being released.

This makes me sick. There is no governmental protection. We are seriously in trouble. These products are going in people's homes. People are buying these products in Home Depot right now.
Please read Jim Vallette's important piece.
This is how they are getting away with putting toxic waste in our household products:
“It is our contention that coal is consumed by the utility (the end consumer of the coal) in the process of production of electricity and that Celceram [Boral’s branded fly ash] is a product that can no longer be used for its intended purpose (i.e., the generation of heat to create steam) and would otherwise be sent to the waste stream.”
“Hmm, industrial waste is now post-consumer recycled content? It is a dubious argument at best.”
Using Coal Fly Ash for snow removal is being done all over the United States.
This is an article on the history of mercury and other toxins in paint.
“Mercury (phenyl mercuric acetate) has been used as a biocide in paint, but was banned from use in interior latex paint in 1991 and voluntarily withdrawn from exterior latex in 1991. (A biocide generally means any substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, molds, fungi, etc.) Mercury-containing biocides are still allowed in exterior latex paints, but manufacturers are working to reduce or eliminate it.”
“Water based paints are considered the safest to use. Paints manufactured before 1990 may, however, contain mercury, which even at low levels of exposure can cause neurological damage without noticeable symptoms. Small percentages of alcohol solvents and glycol ethers are also found in most water based paints.”

HOLISTIC AND NATURAL
I recommend products that are natural to our well-being, and only ones that can be found in the grocery or health food store. Everything I recommend I do myself. Everything I do is on my website, and everyone can use my site to get back to feeling great, naturally. However, some people can be very deep in the woods, allergic to just about everything, while suffering from chronic pain and inflammation. Helping people naturally, takes time, patience, attention to detail, and experience.
