Re: Cookware, packing toxins polluting drinking water in 27 US states – report
So many have missed the point. It's not only about the cookware you choose. It's about the chemical used in the process of making these products.

It's this chemical in the water, in the environment, in so many items, you cannot escape it and it's already in you and will be in your unborn children, even if your water supply is not contaminated yet.

It's not safe to cook, bathe, wash clothes, etc. with this water if there is contamination from this chemical.

People said, oh it's all downstream, it won't affect us. Then it was found, upstream. It's found tens of miles away from the rivers it's dumped in, east, west, north, south.

I just have to wonder, is it in the air too? Is it released as contaminated water evaporates? Is it in the rain?

Think of all those products in landfills now.

Your cheeseburger didn't stick to it's wrapper, but you also ate the chemicals that made that possible.

My question is, if you distill your own water, will that distilled water have the chemical in it? Is there any way to get that chemical safely out of your water at home?

(not that it matters much since it's everywhere, but you can at least reduce how much you intake.)
 Quoting: a Dude, not THE Dude


I'm not sure, but the plants producing the chemical have released it into the air as well as the water. How those air releases came about, I've not heard. Since PFOA can be released by overheating a skillet, I wouldn't think the distilling process would be any safer.

The science panel has said that charcoal filters do not remove all the PFOA from water.

Morgan Spurlock is directing a documentary titled The Devil We Know, featuring Erin Brockovich. Spurlock's first documentary was Super Size Me. He is also from the area.

“C8 is one of the most prolific contaminants we’re seeing. It’s popping up every place,” Brockovich said. “It’s in everything. I’m dealing with so many communities right now who are sick. Many have suffered with illnesses that science is starting to link with C8.”
