Highly fluorinated chemicals (also known as PFCs or PFASs or C8 and C6) are now everywhere – deep in the ocean, on mountaintops and in nearly all living creatures. A professor of environmental chemistry at the University of Toronto, has said that this class of chemicals will last in the environment for geological time – that is, millions of years – perhaps even longer than humanity. Making and using chemicals that could be harmful and persist longer than mankind is a serious matter, and it should not be undertaken lightly.
