The 3M-funded study is at odds with extensive scientific literature based on large populations of people who had been exposed to PFAS for years.
There’s a new reason to be concerned about PFOA and PFOs, toxic chemicals used in nonstick pans, waterproof products, and firefighting foam.
Internal studies and other documents show that 3M knew by the 1970s that PFOA and PFOS were toxic and accumulating in people's blood.
The EPA doesn't want to hear from people who have PFOA and other PFAS chemicals in their drinking water.
While the dangers of PFOA and PFOS are widely known, very little is known about the other chemicals in their class, PFAS.
A busca por “reciclar” plásticos é um dos elementos de um esforço massivo liderado pela indústria para enfraquecer os planos de reduzir o desperdício de plástico.
Pushes to “recycle” plastics are one element of a massive, industry-led effort to suppress meaningful efforts to reduce plastic waste.
The chemical industry’s and the Trump EPA’s eagerness to phase out experimental testing on lab animals appears to be a sneak attack on chemical regulation.
New data suggests that the safety threshold for PFOA in drinking water should be as low as .1 parts per trillion, according to a top U.S. toxicologist.
According to a 2001 study sponsored by 3M, 12 samples of food from around the country tested positive for PFAS chemicals.
