Toxic Teflon: DuPont and the chemistry of deception

Recommended Posts

Concerns about the safety of Teflon, C8, and other long-chain perfluorinated chemicals first came to wide public attention more than a decade ago, but the story of DuPont’s long involvement with C8 has never been fully told. Over the past 15 years, as lawyers have been waging an epic legal battle — culminating as the first of approximately 3,500 personal injury claims comes to trial in September — a long trail of documents has emerged that casts new light on C8, DuPont, and the fitful attempts of the Environmental Protection Agency to deal with a threat to public health.

I remember an interesting story where a woman accidentally left a Teflon coated pan on the stove where it had reached a temperature that released toxic chemicals.

Her birds all died at the moment they had inhaled the poisonous fumes.

Talk about canary in a coal mine.
