    C8 Science Panel Findings To Be Disclosed!

    Uncertainty of "Probable Links" Between Toxic Teflon Chemical & Slew of Human Illnesses May Put Pressure on Shares of Secretive Chemical Conglomerate, 3M Corp Competitor DuPont

    Good Afternoon, Bonjour, Guten Abend,

    Folks, for years, DuPont's sneaky Management has insisted with a straight face that their extraordinarily toxic Teflon chemical, C8 or PFOA, a likely human carcinogen, is perfectly SAFE, has no human health effects, and is as pure and innocent as Snow White.

    Recall in a class action lawsuit brought by 100,000 residents around Parkersburg, West Virginia over C8-contaminated drinking water, a truculent DuPont Management reluctantly settled for $107.6 million, with the promise that if an independent C8 Science Panel found any "probable link" between toxic C8 exposure and illness or disease, DuPont would shell out up to an additional $235 million for continuing medical monitoring of victimised residents.

    Now after six years, the lumbering C8 Panel is finally ready to release its first report on "probable link". If no "probable link" is found, DuPont is off the hook for medical monitoring for that particular illness or disease. If such "link" is unearthed, then a floodgate of litigation could be opened as residents sue DuPont for their health injuries and losses.

    The Panel has called a press conference for Monday, Dec. 5, 2011 in Vienna, right outside Parkersburg, fitting because Parkersburg is ground zero for decades of DuPont's insidious toxic contamination from its ill-managed White-Washing Works Teflon factory.

    Merely the afternoon commentary of one individual investor and long-time student of the deceptive DuPont...funfun..
