An alert.

Below is an article from The Nation Institute that describes what looks to be a careful study of “teflon” or C8 or the name of the precursor chemical, perfluorooctanoic acid.  The compound could be in 99% of everyone (people).  Looks like there was a massive cover-up about this story by Dupont.  There is a number of published scientific papers listed that I have not read yet.
