Don’t believe the lies of big industry when they tell you something is safe. Look for the proof it’s been tested. Unfortunately these behemoths are not required to test their products thoroughly in fact you are their guinea pigs. Like Monsanto (now morphed into Bayer) telling us glyphosate / Roundup are safe as dish liquid in the ’70s & in spite of all the independent research they still drag their feet & deny. DuPont in this instance after a 7 year long challenge to their fake science they were forced to withdraw the offending chemical in Teflon ware … however … not to be defeated they’ve produced another chemical, like its predecessor not fully tested & on it goes. These giants are like slippery two headed snakes, they will get you one way or another. Profits matter, you don’t. Watch also The Corporation doco. An expose of the lies we are fed. And as to the big ‘C’, MD Samuel Epstein wrote a book in the 1970s identifying the causes of cancer (The Politics of Cancer), ignored of course by big industry, and the medical industry, they prefer to have you think it’s genetic & above all mysterious ‘but they’re still working on it’ and asking for your donations to help them. It’s been a very long time & still no answers? Meanwhile the cancer industry is big business, each year (in the US) generating over $200 billion in revenue. All around it’s a win win for them, so long as you remain in the dark. EWR

Poison The World – The Chemistry Of A Cover-Up Documentary / Documentaries 2018 THE DEVIL WE KNOW (English Subs) This HD documentary details DuPont’s alleged decades-long cover-up of the potential harm caused by chemicals used to make popular Teflon products The Devil We Know is a 2018 investigative documentary film by director Stephanie Soechtig regarding allegations of health hazards from Teflon, and the DuPont corporation’s potential responsibility. It includes footage of public hearings, news reports and corporate ads, along with input from scientists and activists. The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Citizens in West Virginia battle a powerful corporation after learning that it has consciously been dumping a toxic chemical into the local water supply. Their investigation unearths that this chemical is actually found in the blood of 99.7% Americans.
In 1945, Dupont began making Teflon. Today one of the chemicals used to make it is in the blood of 99.7% of all Americans.

How 3M and DuPont made billions by exposing the entire world to a toxic chemical which causes cancer and birth defects and is now found in the blood of 99.7% of Americans.
From Ecowatch: When you drink a glass of water, you expect it to be clean and pure, not contaminated with invisible toxic chemicals. But nationwide testing has found that 6.5 million Americans in 27 states are drinking water tainted by an industrial compound that was used for decades to make Teflon. The chemical, known as PFOA, has been detected in 94 public water systems. The amounts are small, but new research indicates that it can be hazardous even at the tiniest doses. PFOA and closely related fluorinated chemicals—including PFOS, once used to make Scotchgard—can cause cancer, birth defects and heart disease and weaken the immune system….

Ten Years Later, Chemical Safety and Justice for DuPont’s Teflon Victims Remain Elusive
DuPont’s Dirty History
In 2005 the Environmental Protection Agency fined chemical giant DuPont a record $16.5 million over its decades-long cover-up of the health hazards of C8, also known as PFOA. One of a family of perfluorinated chemicals, or PFCs, PFOA was a key ingredient in making Teflon, the non-stick, waterproof, stain-resistant “miracle of modern chemistry” used in thousands of household products….
DuPont had long known that PFOA caused cancer, had poisoned drinking water in the mid-Ohio River Valley and polluted the blood of people and animals worldwide.
It’s been 10 years since the EPA’s history-making judgment against DuPont and PFOA, but its victims are still seeking justice. DuPont has failed to clean up water supplies, is shirking its promise to monitor the health of the communities it poisoned and is gearing up to fight in court against paying damages to its victims.
