    CNN has a piece up about the effects of the chemical perfluorooctanoic acid (aka , PFOA and C8) and the DuPont Company. I know just a little about this subject. Yes, we’ve used C8 for decades as have many other companies (it was a 3M product until 2002). No, we never made it at Washington Works. No adverse human health effects have ever been identified. The levels in the water around WW were approximately 150 times lower than the level that the WV and OH EPAs have set as safe (There is no federal EPA guideline.)

    And, yes, I’ve used C8 many times in the lab.
