Highly fluorinated chemicals are found in fire-fighting foam used by military and domestic airports, furniture, carpets, outdoor gear, clothing, cosmetics, cookware and food packaging. The chemicals make their way from manufacturing facilities, consumer products and fire-fighting activities into the air, water, and food, and then into humans.

More than 6 million Americans are drinking water polluted with highly fluorinated chemicals.

The most-studied chemicals in the class are linked to kidney and testicular cancer, thyroid disease, decreased sperm quality, high cholesterol, decreased immune function in children, and other serious health problems.

The health impact of these chemicals, which are increasingly being found in our drinking water, is very concerning. Some scientists say we are carrying out an unintended chemical experiment on our population.

    The ‘chemical experiment’ is intended, of that you can be sure. Our government knowingly and willfully is subjecting us to harmful toxins because if not, why have there been no calls for massive cleanup operations and the like? With robots coming down the pike in the near future to take over just about every job a human can do, what need is there for ‘humans’? There is already talk of some sort of universal basic income for the millions who will be displaced. Yeah! And like that’s going to happen when congress doesn’t even want to fund the social programs that are now in existence. We are all walking toxin factories. That is why cancer is now so prevalent when it wasn’t so in the past. And the so-called ‘cure’ for cancer is to flood the body with even more toxins to ‘cure’ it. And how is that working out? Shall we ask all the dead people who were given those lethal concoctions?

    • You ask some important questions, I struggle with some of the same questions and the answers I come up aren’t pretty. I suspect it relates to an innate conviction among the families who have always ruled the US that some lives are more valuable than others. This was the only way they could justify to themselves extermination hundreds of thousands of indigenous people and kidnapping and enslaving hundreds of thousands of Africans. I think we just have to face the fact that human life has no value to them.
