This is the first book to reveal, in riveting detail, the story of how a little-known chemical compound called C8, manufactured by DuPont for use in making many common consumer products-among them, Teflon cookware and stain-resistant carpeting-has come to pose a threat to the health of people, animals, and the environment.
"It's everywhere. It's toxic. And it lasts forever." This statement, made by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2003, refers to a little-known but ubiquitous chemical compound C8. This book tells the story of how the danger of C8 first came to light when a West Virginia family lost an entire herd of 280 cattle to a mysterious wasting disease.
