EPA is taking steps to regulate PFOA's

Postby Lightening Bug » Wed Jun 05, 2019 2:19 pm

There has been some indication that PFOS'a can cause cancer. 98% of Americans have PFOA's in their blood.

What has PFOA's in them?

From the article below -

How general populations are exposed to PFOA is not completely understood. PFOA has been detected in industrial waste, stain-resistant carpets, carpet-cleaning liquids, house dust, microwave popcorn bags, water, food, some cookware and Teflon (PTFE) products.

First time I've read it was in microwave popcorn bags.

Drinking water is a major concern. Though PFOA production has been stopped we still are exposed to it. It is long lasting because it has a slow rate of degradation. It will be expensive to remove from drinking water.

Are we having fun yet? Thought some of you would find this of interest.

Take care. :D
