If you die within 24 hours, your electric power washers will be disconnected and replaced with an electric blanket.
The blanket is supposed to last for up to one year and can be replaced if you have any health problems, such as asthma or heart problems.
But a recent study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania suggests that in some people, the blanket can be as dangerous as the original power washes.
The study found that when a person died within the 24-hour period after death, the electric blanket was still emitting harmful levels of mercury, arsenic, lead, and cadmium, as well as other toxic substances.
In some people who had died within 24 days, the levels of toxins were up to 300 times higher than normal, according to the study published online this week in the journal PLOS One.
And even if you didn’t die within the first 24 hours of death, you could be exposed to the toxic chemicals.

They found that the average person exposed to toxins in an average electric power garment would have levels of lead, arsenic and cadmetium up to 100 times higher, as compared to the average human, who had levels of arsenic and mercury only slightly lower.
The findings could explain why some people are able to continue to use electric power after death.
“I think that what’s really interesting about this is the extent to which the electric power industry has tried to address the concern about toxins in electric power garments,” said study co-author Michael DeSantis, a senior scientist at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“It’s really a complex issue that requires a lot of research to understand.”
In some cases, the toxins in a blanket can have serious health consequences, including cancer and neurological problems.
“The idea that the blanket could be harmful, and the blanket might have some risk for cancer, has been shown to be incorrect,” said DeSantsons study coauthor Andrew J. Katz, a professor of epidemiology at the Columbia University School of Medicine.
“But it is true that people who are exposed to more toxins have higher cancer risk than people who don’t have exposure to the same amount of toxins.”
Katz said that the research shows that consumers who don-t have exposure problems should still be cautious about buying electric power blankets.
“We don’t want to be making blanket statements, but if someone dies within 24-hours, they should contact their healthcare provider to make sure that the blankets they’re using aren’t harmful,” he said.
Consumers can also tell if their electric power is safe by checking the label.
“A label that says ‘this product contains no toxins’ or ‘this blanket contains no toxic materials’ will tell you if it’s a safe product,” Katz said.
A blanket that doesn’t have a toxic material is not safe.
If you have an electric appliance or other piece of equipment that contains toxic materials, you should call your health care provider and request a test to see if it contains any toxic materials.
The label can be checked online.
The EPA has published a list of safe and hazardous items in electric blankets.
The information can also be found on a website called the American Consumer’s Guide to Electronics, which has information about batteries, electronic circuits and power supplies.
Consumers who want to buy an electric garment can check with their manufacturer, which might provide more information.
“If there is a health concern with an item you purchase, it’s important that you call your healthcare provider and discuss the matter with them,” Katz told The Washington Times.
“They can help you determine if your item is safe and what you should do to prevent any harm to yourself or others.”
The EPA recommends consumers check the label on electric power fabrics before buying.
“You should also check to make certain that there is no toxic material on the garment and that the item has no hazardous chemicals in it,” the agency wrote.
“Even if a garment doesn’t contain any toxic material, you can still use it to power your household, for example, in your washing machine, dryer, oven or water heater.”
The American Consumer of Electronics, a trade association representing electronics manufacturers, said it has seen a decrease in the number of consumers buying electric blankets in recent years.
The American National Standards Institute, which is a nonprofit that supports electronics standards, reported that in 2016, nearly 40 million consumers used electric blankets for personal protection, but that that number fell to 28 million in 2017 and 20 million in 2018.
The institute expects the trend to continue in 2020.
“There is no reason to think that consumers will be buying blanket electronics again, especially with consumers who are buying for family, friends, and others who may need it,” said Matt Schubert
