Brominated flame retardants are a cause for concern due to their environmental persistence and ability to accumulate in humans and animals. These chemicals resist degradation, leading to their long-term presence in the environment. Additionally, they can build up in the bodies of living organisms, including humans, through various exposure routes. These factors raise concerns about their potential impact on ecosystems and human health.
