Dangers of Using Products Coated with Teflon

EPA Rules Teflon A Potentially Risky Product. ‘Late last year, I posted a news item detailing the dangers of using products coated with Teflon. Specifically, the toxic chemical used to produce it, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA or C-8), has been appearing in people and animals worldwide.Wednesday, the EPA ruled low-level exposure to PFOA could pose “a potential risk of developmental and other adverse effects” on human health. The preliminary ruling is significant because it could help to determine if the Feds will regulate its use.’
