    Default chemicals that silently kill

    Just got through hearing about
    PFOA.A chemical that has been
    widely used for years and years.

    It's found in teflon coating,
    oven cleaner,stain master carpet,
    and many other places.

    It has been found to cause
    reproductory problems and
    cancer in lab animals.In
    4 out of 5 humans tested it
    shows up in their blood.

    Now the debate is on in
    what to do.There may be a
    national ban.So much for
    science and modern
    conveniences.

    Any comments are
    welcome.

    Yeah, I heard that teflon is bad. It can cause some major health problems from what I heard.

    Boy! I'm glad we've pretty well got it scraped off of the pots and pans at the FD. It's amazing how much it looks like pepper.
