PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid or perfluorooctanoate) is a manufactured chemical that’s been used in the United States since the 1940’s in the manufacture of popular consumer goods including Teflon.
According to the US EPA:
[PFOA and PFOS] are “extremely persistent in the environment and resistant to typical environmental degradation processes. They are widely distributed across the higher trophic levels and are found in soil, air and groundwater at sites across the United States. The toxicity, mobility and bioaccumulation potential of PFOS and PFOA pose potential adverse effects for the environment and human health.
