Hi dear friends!
My wife and I just watched a movie: Dark Waters – the true-life story of an attorney who takes on the chemical company DuPont after discovering the cover-up and lies the company was engaged in regarding the massive levels of toxins that were and continue to be buried and dispersed into our air, water and food, and the horrible effects they have caused on untold lives.
DuPont is just one company of thousands that are slowly killing us. Don’t be misled, if a company is using any synthetic chemicals at all, the waste they produce IS being dumped into our earth, not to mention the chemicals from the products themselves that are leaching into everything we touch, eat, use, sleep on, shower with etc.
Specifically, DuPont is the creator of many chemicals including PFAS, PTFE, and PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) a.k.a. C8, or by its common name today – Teflon. These are in a class of nearly 5,000 substances called “forever chemicals” because of how long they persist. C8 never actually breaks down in the environment!
Teflon is just one of many chemicals that has been shown conclusively to cause birth defects, cancer, autoimmune disease, hormonal problems, etc. Yet, even after extensive testing and research was done and DuPont itself admitted to the toxic levels, they still continued to produce these poisons. C8 is an eight carbon fluroethylene synthetic chemical that is very resistant to destruction and can stay in the body for life.
By the way, Teflon is not just found in frying pans - it’s in carpets, clothes, furniture, wire and cable coatings, many office and home products as well. It is consistently leaching and off-gassing toxic chemicals and therefore we are constantly exposed to them. Subsequently, studies have found that it is present in every single person! In fact, an alarming statement at the end of the movie reads that it has been determined that C8 has made its way to every corner of the planet. Every living creature on our planet has C8 in its blood including 99% of human beings. Forever chemicals are everywhere and are here to stay.
Again, keep in mind C8 is just one chemical of tens of thousands that we’re exposed to every day. The majority of synthetic chemicals used in product manufacturing today is unsafe, regardless of what the manufacturers say.
Interestingly, in reviewing archaeological studies of ancient bones and comparing them to ours today, experts have found we have about ONE THOUSAND TIMES the amount of certain heavy metals deposited into inner tissues, fat, bones, and ligaments that people had thousands of years ago. The result may explain the surge in gastrointestinal-related adverse health symptoms, such as fungal mycotoxins, gut dysbiosis and a host of other disorders.
The story told in Dark Waters is really just the first chapter in a public health nightmare that’s continuing to play out all over the country.
The story was so heart-wrenching and disturbing that my wife and I were physically brought to tears seeing how callus and uncaring these evil companies are in destroying the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions.
Chemical companies, including pharmaceutical companies (who use petroleum-based drugs that contain many other synthetic chemicals and heavy metals) are killing the planet; they are killing animals, they are killing the human race and are doing so willingly and freely – for profit. These chemicals are largely responsible for the increase of diseases so prevalent today that were mostly nonexistent 150 years ago, before the Industrial Revolution. How can we not think that tampering with nature and trying to improve what God has created would not yield horrible results?!
