EPA-recommended chemicals levels in water too high: U.S. report
The chemicals in question, which have been used for decades in products like Teflon and other non-stick products and firefighting foam, have contaminated water systems. Companies like Dow Chemical and 3M have faced numerous lawsuits from people exposed to the chemicals in their water supply.
The chemicals are linked to cancer, liver and thyroid damage, and other health and fetal effects. Both Republican and Democratic lawmakers in certain states have expressed alarm over exposure to the chemicals.
Also known as C8, the chemical was used at companies like DuPont in West Virginia and other states since the 1950s to make Teflon and other nonstick products, and has affected area residents.
