DuPont faces 40 trials a year over cancer tied to water-repellent chemical known as PFC: C8 or PFOA.
This single case proves beyond doubt that chemicals in consumer products are insufficiently tested for safety prior to being used.
Just think how many brands (products) used this chemical for non-stick applications for decades; including cooking utensils and textiles. Many of us will still be using Teflon coated pans and waterproof apparel containing this toxic chemical.
To give you a specific example GR looked at leading sportswear brands RSL's and found PFOA stated in their polyester apparel. There is currently no legal obligation for clothing brands to disclose the toxic chemicals they use to their customers.
We can't be the only people who find this alarming 'cancer causing chemicals in your sportswear'.
