Rotten to the Core

Some of the best-known laptops are contaminated with some of the worst known toxic chemicals, and weíve got the test results to prove it. Some of your favorite tech gadgets are made with toxic chemicals like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic, brominated flame retardants(BFRs) and even lead. Brands like Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Apple contained the highest levels of contamination, despite claims to the contrary. And when last yearís coolest trend isnít so cool anymore, tons of tossed out electronics make their way to the developing world, where children dismantle them for scraps, and are exposed to the toxics they contain. Itís time for these companies to cut the chemicals from their products, and create a strong recycling program.
