Default Leaked FDA study finds milk, meat, produce contaminated with 'forever chemicals'

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found that chemicals linked to cancer are showing up in milk, meat, produce and even store-made chocolate cakes sold in the U.S., according to an agency study that has not yet been made public.

Aspects of the study, presented last week at a scientific conference in Helsinki found the class of chemicals, abbreviated as PFAS, present in a number of other food products. PFAS are often referred to as “forever chemicals” because of the time it takes them to break down.

The FDA said it plans to publicly release the findings after details of the study were leaked to The Hill and other U.S. media outlets by environmental groups.

“I’m not sure why they released it there and not in the U.S., but I’m just glad it’s out,” said Tom Neltner, chemicals policy director with the Environmental Defense Fund, one of the groups that released the information.The FDA confirmed the contents of the leaked report.

The chemicals in question are used in a staggering number of products including food packaging. Some states have banned packaging that's made with the chemicals, citing research that shows they can transfer to food items.

PFAS has been linked with kidney and thyroid cancer along with high cholesterol and other illnesses.

The FDA's research showed that water contaminated with PFAS likely ends up in the food supply. Fourteen of 91 samples taken by the agency contained the chemicals, while almost half of all meat and seafood samples tested positive.

PFAS has been found in the water supply near military bases, airports that often use firefighting foam and factories that manufacture products with PFAS.

The study outlined examples of the contamination spreading to food.

Produce for sale at a farmer's market 10 miles from a PFAS production plant was found to have the chemical, and testing from a dairy farm near an Air Force base in New Mexico found that water contamination from the base had reached the cows and the milk they produced.

“It would take approximately 1.5 years to eliminate PFOS from the cow after a 30-day exposure period,” the study noted, using an abbreviation for another form of PFAS.

The study said that even when food sources tested positive, they were “not likely to be a safety concern.”

But Neltner said that view is too narrow.

“They just assume all these are one-off isolated incidents, but there’s cumulative exposure here that has to be considered,” he said.

Neltner said he was concerned that the FDA study skewed toward environmental contamination rather than everyday food packaging. He said he was particularly bothered by the high levels of PFAS found in store-bought chocolate cake, which registered at more than 250 times the level the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends for water.

Ignores the first rule of toxicology as usual with these headline chasing findings.

The dose makes the poison. No reference to what levels where found and what levels have been found to be dangerous. So utterly useless info.

part of the article addresses the toxic water levels in chocolate cakes...

He said he was particularly bothered by the high levels of PFAS found in store-bought chocolate cake, which registered at more than 250 times the level the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends for water.

I've had that sugar book queue'd forever. I heard its a good read, but haven't gotten around to it & kinda scared to read it cuz I've heard enough bad sh^t about sugar already & I can't never get rolling on keto sh^t.

Never heard of the other book I'll check it out doe.
