THE PFOA MOLECULE DOSE NOT DEGRADE OVER TIME

In 2007, the shocking results of a study conducted at the John Hopkin’s Medical Center (Bethesda, MD) showed that levels of the toxic PFOA were found in 100% of a sample of almost 300 newborns, delivered at the hospital. Samples of umbilical chord blood were also shown to contain varying levels of PFOS. Asians (6 ng/ml) had the highest concentration, followed by Blacks (5.1 ng/ml) and Whites (4.2 ng/ml). Males babies had higher PFOS and PFOA than females. Obese and underweight mothers had slightly higher concentrations than women of normal weight. Other studies have found that some of the highest levels of PFOA and PFOS have been in children.

Two perfluorinated compounds– PFOA and PFOS– were found in virtually all of 299 newborn babies studied in Baltimore, according to scientists from Johns Hopkins University. The results indicate that exposure in the womb to these two chemicals is virtually ubiquitous. Eight other PFCs were detected less frequently.

The saturation of PFOA in human blood has lots of scientists worried.

THE PFOA MOLECULE DOSE NOT DEGRADE OVER TIME, so every one that is made and released in the environment will continue to be there for an indefinite time. The cumulative levels of PFOA will continue to increase in both the environment and in the human body.

DuPont studies show that the Teflon off-gases toxic particulates at 446° F. At 680°F Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens, two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses. At temperatures that DuPont scientists claim are reached on stovetop drip pans (1000°F), non-stick coatings break down to a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB, Perfluoroisobutylene a chemical analog of the –   WWII nerve gas phosgene…

ABC News-Impacts of PFOS and PFOA

PROBLEMS WITH AUSTRALIAN MILITARY FIRE FIGHTING CHEMICALS:
It was revealed in September 2015
the chemicals had leaked from Williamtown Air Force base into ground and surfacewater, prompting bans on bore water and closing fishing grounds. “Stop trying to downplay the seriousness of this issue. They are incredibly serious toxins, and it is a real worry for those people living around them.-” Mariann Lloyd-Smith, National Toxics Network senior advisor. – The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has started a statewide investigation into the historical use of the firefighting foam.

Editors comment:-
The RAAF once used harmless, environmentally friendly, fermented blood and bone,
and liquorice to make fire fighting foam, – it made the plants grow fast…
