Is there PFAS-Free Food? For those who know just how terribly toxic PFAS (forever poisons) are to the environment and to the human body, also know that PFAS are found in everything!
You can find PFAS in your socks and your shampoo to Mother’s milk and even Polar Bears –literally everywhere, so is there PFAS-Free Food anywhere?
This is The Billion Dollar Question!
Before I answer that, it’s important you know the history of PFAS and why even though it was banned here years ago, PFAS continues to contaminate you and the world you live in.
PFAS have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe, especially in the United States since the 1940s.
PFOA and PFOS have been the most extensively produced and studied of these toxic chemicals. Both PFOA and PFOS are very persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down and they can accumulate over time.
There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.
PFAS can be found in:
- Food packaged in PFAS-containing materials, processed with equipment that used PFAS, or grown in PFAS-contaminated soil or water.
- Commercial household products, including stain- and water-repellent fabrics, nonstick products (e.g., Teflon), polishes, waxes, paints, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams (a major source of groundwater contamination at airports and military bases where firefighting training occurs).
- Workplace, including production facilities or industries (e.g., chrome plating, electronics manufacturing or oil recovery) that use PFAS.
- Drinking water, typically localized and associated with a specific facility (e.g., manufacturer, landfill, wastewater treatment plant, firefighter training facility).
- Living organisms, including fish, animals and humans, where PFAS have the ability to build up and persist over time.
Certain PFAS chemicals are no longer manufactured in the United States as a result of phase outs including the PFOA Stewardship Program in which eight major poison manufacturers agreed to eliminate the use of PFOA and PFOA-related chemicals in their products and as emissions from their facilities.
Although many PFOA and PFOS poisons are no longer manufactured in the United States, as far as we have been told of course, they are still produced internationally and can be imported into the United States in consumer goods such as carpet, leather and apparel, textiles, paper and packaging, coatings, rubber and plastics.
Another disturbing fact is that PFAS is found in baby formula!
Talk about getting a bad start in life –whether you nurse your baby or feed your baby formula, rest assured your baby will grow up with PFAS already in their little body and the accumulation only starts from there.
By adulthood, some of the most common effects of PFAS buildup include all sorts of ailments, from infertility, weakened immune system and disrupting thyroid hormones, to testicular cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer and brain cancer –and let’s not forget all the muscle and neurological disorders you could develop along the way.
Yes, PFAS are very nasty and will be around forever.
So the next Billion Dollar question is, how do you clean out a life-long buildup of PFAS from every cell in your whole body and continually clean out PFAS?
It starts with eating food that isn’t contaminated with PFAS. No duh, right?
Unfortunately, all the food and drinks sold everywhere, including certified organic, all have at least trace amounts of PFAS and most foods and drinks contain PFAS levels well above the ‘acceptable limit’.
I mean seriously, did they think they can pour tons of PFAS in our environment for almost a century now, and it won’t poison all the water and soil that grows everything for generations?
They actually poisoned themselves and even their grandchildren –not sure you can get much dumber than that.
And let me just quickly point out the amount of fluorine used in cosmetics today is just shocking!
Fluorine is just one of the PFAS poisons still very much in use today.
And so much fluorine is used in cosmetics that you have to wonder if there is some sort of conspiracy going on to poison the female population.
Fluorine can be linked to low birth rates and increased infertility.
And in fact, 2018 was the first year in US history that had more deaths than births, which means the population is now decreasing here! Of course, you don’t hear about this statistic much.
