Several U.S. manufacturers say they’ll eliminate a Teflon chemical called
PFOA from consumer products coated with the popular non-stick material.
PFOA, or Perfluorooctanoic acid, is used in the production of common
consumer products like non-stick cookware, breathable all-weather clothing,
and stain-resistant materials.
PFOA takes years to break down - and research has shown that it’s appearing
in our blood and thousands of kilometres from the manufacturing plants that
produce it, in the blood of polar bears in the Arctic.
Not surprising they are even putting Teflon in windshield washer fluid!
