Teflon thyroid link

You may not have heard of it but perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is all around you. It is in some stain and water-resistant carpet and fabric coatings, certain cleaning products, and some microwave popcorn bags among other things. PFOA is also found in the chemical polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is best known as the non-stick finish Teflon. Researchers tested blood PFOA levels in 3974 people between 1999 and 2006. They found that those with in the top 25 per cent for blood PFOA levels were twice as likely to have thyroid disease as those with the lowest concentrations. It’s not clear whether PFOA is causing thyroid disease, possibly by affecting the immune system, or whether there is a reverse effect, and thyroid disease makes people more susceptible to accumulating PFOA in the bloodstream. What it is though, is another warning sign regarding plastic ingredients and their accumulation in your body.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
