Dangerous Chemicals in Food Wrappers Likely Contaminating Humans

GreenTracker| University of Toronto scientists believe that PFCAs (perfluorinated carboxylic acids) used to line junk food wrappers and microwave popcorn bags are migrating into food and then ingested by humans, where they are contributing to chemical contamination in the blood.

PCFAs are used to make non-stick and water-and stain-repellent products from clothing to kitchen pots and pans. They are also used in clothing. 

“In this study we clearly demonstrate that the current use of PAPs in food contact applications does result in human exposure to PFCAs, including PFOA. We cannot tell whether PAPs are the sole source of human PFOA exposure or even the most important, but we can say unequivocally that PAPs are a source and the evidence from this study suggests this could be significant.” via Science Daily
