PFA’s — Known Toxicity “For Years”

September 9th, 2019

EWG has just released a list of documents that confirm knowledge about the risks of PFA’s to health–this link will connect you with a long list of reports. PFA’s have been associated with cancer, endocrine disruption, immune system dysfunction, and liver compromise. Items that contain PFA’s include non-stick cookware, water-resistant clothing, food packaging, and stain-resistant carpet and upholstery. Ditch the non-stick cookware–use cast iron or stainless steel. Think twice before getting that take-out meal. Take your own glass or stainless steel container to a restaurant for your leftovers. Consider wood floors and natural untreated fabrics or carpeting. PFA’s are cumulative so avoid them wherever you can. Here is another link for more information to support your health from PFA’s.
