Why should you care about PFOA’s and C8?

You lock your doors, tuck your children into bed and do everything you can to make sure they are safe. Then they ask you for a glass of water before they fall asleep. You give them a glass of tap water and kiss them good night. Meanwhile, the chemical companies are dumping PFOA's into the ground. The military bases are hosing down AFFF until it seeps into the ground. These chemicals degrade into C8 and make it into your water supply. They may be in that glass of water you just gave your child.

North Bennington, Vermont

Added to the list of areas with C8 Contaminated Water.  More than likely, North Bennington’s water supply is tainted by a local chemical company.  In an effort to get out in front of the problem, Vermont has reduced the levels of PFOA considered acceptable from .04 BPB to .02 BPB.  Unfortunately the news accounts are labeling PFOA/C8 as potentially harmful despite a medical consensus that it causes a variety of diseases and/or illnesses ranging from birth defects to cancer.

Here is a clip from their local news concerning the changes.
