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.

The Teflon Toxin
In a three-part series at the Intercept, Investigative Fund reporter
Sharon Lerner uncovers new evidence that shows DuPont knew about the
serious health effects of C8 for decades, the chemical most famously used
in the production of Teflon. C8 has been found to be a probable cause in
six serious diseases, including kidney and testicular cancer. As Lerner
discovers, the company continued to profit from C8 for decades even while
campaigning to keep the science from employees, the public, and the EPA.
