Board: Teflon Chemical a Likely Carcinogen
Posted on Feb 16, 2006
AP: DOVER, Del. - A group of scientific advisers to the Environmental Protection Agency voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a recommendation that a chemical used in the manufacture of Teflon and other nonstick and stain-resistant products should be considered a likely carcinogen.
The approval of the EPA’s Science Advisory Board is conditioned on minor clarifications being made to a draft report submitted by a review panel, but no major changes will be made to the panel’s findings.
We had a report two weeks ago about the greedy politicos who stymied the phaseout of Teflon.
