Whistleblower: toxic ‘forever chemicals’ found in nearly all humans; research findings ignored by maker

The following is an excerpt from MedPage Today.

One scientist who worked for 3M for over 20 years said her research showing that polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were nearly ubiquitous in human blood was buried by her employer, even though it had already come to similar conclusions.

Kris Hansen told ProPublica that early in her career, after her lab confirmed again and again that almost no blood remained free of the contaminant, she was shunned by colleagues and questioned by superiors until ultimately, she left for another department. Hansen convinced herself that the chemicals were safe at low levels.

But experts say PFAS — known as “forever chemicals” — do not break down in the environment and accumulate in the body. They’ve been linked to developmental delays, diabetes, obesity, liver problems, and certain cancers. And, according to ProPublica, companies are still using them, or chemicals that degrade into them, in countless products including dental floss, makeup, nonstick cookware, and hand sanitizer. PFAS are used in explosives, semiconductors, cleaning fluids, and batteries the government depends on.

In 2021, still an employee of 3M, Hansen finally allowed herself to start reading about the harms of these chemicals and what her company had known about them, which came out through thousands of lawsuits filed by cities and towns with polluted water.

Throughout her career at 3M, Hansen hadn’t been ready to believe her employer was poisoning people. “It almost would have been too much to bear at the time,” she told ProPublica.

  1. Sharyl and Full Measure Team,

    More toxic than forever chemicals,
    is our LIMBIC Brain’s drives—sex,
    sadism/masochism, and EMOTIONAL
    excess (( see Hollywood / Porn
    Industries / Novelists / Drug Pushers /
    Democrats / Big Pharma / Public Ed. /
    Public Square / MSM / . . . )).

    Forwarded Message :

    Dear Dr. Naomi Wolf :

    – Limbic Brain is Manifested by Democrats, to Prosecute Mr. Trump –

    Organic Psychology
    area of the brain
    prosecuting Mr. Trump

    Dear Helena Glass,

    I say: “AI is just ones and zeros”—re your
    opinion : “…there is no intelligence…”

    Actually, AI is an oxymoron, because
    INTELLIGENCE is an organic condition
    —not attributable to ones and zeroes,
    switching on and off in some electrical/
    mechanical device.

    The “Far Left” is the LIMBIC-Brain
    battling with the Executive-Brain’s
    LOGIC-driven ( step-wise ) handling
    of our worldly experiences ( your
    “red light” experiences notwith-
    standing ).

    The Limbic brain’s drives are terrifying,
    as – for examples – mass murder by,
    say, Left-driven Stalin, Chairman Mao,
    Pol Pot . . . and Ted Bundy—the latter
    of which attributed his insane sexual
    appetite to violent pornography (( why
    won’t anyone in the field of psychology
    believe him—and work to shut down
    that now ubiquitous, child-mind-mo-
    lesting, adult-corrupting porn industry ? )).


  2. I was told in about 2017 that the CDC has been tracking perfluorinated compounds in the blood of people in the USA since about 1992. According to my source, perfluouinated compounds were in most peoples blood even then. I tried several time to get the data but is was never make available.
