PFC (perfluorinated compounds)

The perfluorinated compounds, PFOA and PFOS are compounds used in non-stick and water-repellent coatings for fabrics, recent studies indicate that these compounds, which can be environmental pollutants, also interfere with the efficiency of vaccine for children. However, these compounds used in water-repellent trademarks; Crypton and Crypton Green, Gore, Stainmaster, Scotchgard, and in nanotech products such as Nano-Tex and GreenShield for years.

The conclusion now is that Perfluorinated chemicals are persistent, bio-accumulative intoxicants (PBTs). Widespread human exposures, including in fetuses, is well documented. PFOS is considered unusually persistent, unable to break-down under any known conditions, thus remaining in our environment forever, posing threats of ongoing exposure and toxicity to humans and animals
