    Are DuPont's Substitutes for Teflon Chemical C8 SAFE??

    What Is DuPont's Secretive Management Using Now To Make Teflon®? They Don't Say

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera,

    Readers, DuPont Management and their slick PR hacks are out with a fluff-filled official DuPont PRESS RELEASE, Feb. 28, 2013, bragging about their "new" Teflon® coatings. They allege their Teflon® coatings are superior to ceramic coatings, and are not made any longer with the insidious C8 or PFOA, which has been inextricably linked with seven horrible diseases and cancers.

    Why should we believe DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management when it comes to non-stick coatings? Recall that in 2004, the U. S. EPA slammed DuPont with the largest civil fine and penalty in the agency's history for two decades' worth of callously covering up critical studies on the Company's extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical PFOA or C8. How do we know the PFOA substitutes used to make the latest round of Teflon® non-stick coatings are not as equally dangerous or potentially harmful? And what are these C8 substitutes? C6 or a variation of C8?

    Trust DuPont's mendacious Management? Risk exposure to the family, the kids? Not this undersigned
    consumer and citizen at large and long-time student of the deceitfully dishonest DuPont...funfun..
