Contaminated drinking water. Right in our own backyard. And probably in yours, too.
Unregulated, toxic chemicals linked to cancer in our wells. Perflourinated chemicals (PFCs), specifically.
Ever persistent, PFCs don’t break down and they don’t boil off.
Prolonged PFC exposure is linked to:
- developmental damage to fetuses during pregnancy
- low birth weight
- accelerated puberty and distorted bones
- kidney and testicular cancer
- liver tissue damage
- impaired production of antibodies
- cholesterol changes
That PFCs are in our drinking water begs questions. I’ve got 3.
