"C8 Linked To Thyroid, Bowel Disease"
"VIENNA, W.Va. -- Exposure to C8 is probably linked to thyroid disease and to an inflammatory bowel disease called ulcerative colitis, according to the latest findings of a scientific team that is investigating the DuPont Co. chemical's potential impacts on human health."
"The C8 Science Panel's report adds to conclusions of the group, which had already reported a 'probable link' between C8 exposure and types of cancer and to dangerous high blood pressure among pregnant women.
Kyle Steenland, a science panel member from Emory University, said the findings aren't absolute proof that C8 causes the illnesses, but certainly indicate exposure to the chemical is 'not a good thing for public health.'"Source: Charleston Gazette, 08/01/2012
