There’s a very interesting new paper out on C8 that concludes:
Girls with higher prenatal exposure to each of the PFCs examined were smaller at birth than those with lower exposure. In addition, those with higher exposure to (PFOS) were larger at 20 months.
This is especially interesting, given the previous findings of the C8 Science Panel last December:
On the basis of epidemiologic and other scientific data available to the C8 Science Panel, we conclude that there is not a probable link between exposure to PFOA (C8) and preterm birth or low birthweight.
Meanwhile, Callie Lyons had an important blog post on C8 issues, reporting this:
Despite lawsuits and health studies, the controversial manufacturing substance C8 remains unregulated by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Cincinnati attorney Rob Bilott is urging the agency to take swift action in light of recent findings from the C8 Science Panel.
