The synthetic “forever chemical” PFAS commonly found in processed food packaging, drinking water, stick resistant cookware, and stain resistant carpeting and clothing has been linked with an increased risk for miscarriage.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that PFAS is a toxic chemical and numerous adverse health consequences have been linked to it including some kinds of cancers (especially breast, testicular and prostate cancers), liver problems, heart disease, hormonal disruption, low birth weight and numerous other health problems including thyroid problems, high cholesterol, kidney problems, prostate problems and fertility problems. Now, another adverse health consequence has been added to that list: tooth decay in children.
Scientists are calling on corporations and regulators to stop unnecessarily exposing the public to potentially deleterious chemicals like PFAS.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just released the findings of its own study of the presence of toxic industrial chemical PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalykyl substances) in food and found that it is, as numerous independent university and research institute studies have reported, leaching into the U.S. food supply.
Another state has filed a lawsuit against Big Chemical companies 3M, Dupont and others over toxic chemicals used in food packaging and other products that have ended up contaminating the public drinking water.
