About ToxicTrailers.com

ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

exposure problems could linger for years

I am a MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) Patient. I am writing to let your readers know that they now have been exposed and will continue to have issues since their exposure. I cuurently take chemicals shots for Formaldehyde, Phenol and Ethanol. I have respiratory issues that once I smell chemicals my vocal chords swell and my throat closes up.
I live in Canton, MS and travel to Gadsden, AL to receive treatment.The main point I wanted to point out is that perfumes, colognes, shaving creams, laundry detergents, dishwashing liquids and other products contain these chemicals and when they get as bad as mine they will have to quit using these products or suffer more than necessary.
I have been dealing with this for 2 years, although my initial exposure was actually 18 years ago. Everyone's body is different and our bodies can defend themselves at different levels until it can't fight it.
My biggest concern is that the children living in these campers will face what I face. I am 39 years old and a soldier who is crippled not by the war or civil unrest, but by the chemicals in our environment. Anyone with questions can feel free to email me at andyfarbarker@bellsouth.net.
You can enter any new mobile home property and open the door to a new mobile home and the formaldehyde will take your breath away even if you are not sensitive. Thanks for reading this email.
