Non-Stick Cancer

   By Emelius at 8:38 PM

      A story broke today that affects every person in America and your potential to get cancer. It appears that DuPont failed to report to the EPA for over 20 years that Teflon can cause cancer. Teflon comes in a variety of products, but the one that affects most people will be on your cookery. That wonderful coating that keeps your eggs from sticking to the pan can cause cancer. Please be sure to use wood or plastic utensils when cooking and dispose of damaged or scared cookery. Do not continue to use cookery that is flaking.

The agency's draft assessment found unusually high exposure to perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA, caused liver and testicular cancer in animals, and those effects might occur in people. The study will be reviewed next month by a panel of scientists outside the agency, Charles Auer, the director of EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention & Toxics, said today.
