ABOUT C8. NEW DOCUMENTARY BY AWARD-WINNING DIRECTOR STEPHANIE SOECHTIG AND OSCAR® NOMINATED FILMMAKER MORGAN SPURLOCK TO FEATURE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST ERIN BROCKOVICH.
● C8 – also known as PFOA – is a synthetic industrial chemical that has been used in the manufacture of Teflon cookware and countless other products, like water-repellent clothing, stain-resistant carpeting, food wrappers, pizza boxes, microwave popcorn, dental floss, firefighting foam, and more.
● A panel of independent scientists have linked C8 exposure, even at low doses, to kidney cancer, testicular cancer, ulcerative colitis, high cholesterol, thyroid disease, and pre-eclampsia.
● C8 has been detected in the drinking water of at least 6.5 million Americans in 27 states.
● C8 is one of the most persistent chemicals known to man - it is completely resistant to biodegradation and it accumulates in the blood.
● C8 has been found in the blood and organs of numerous wildlife species around the globe, from the Alaskan polar bear to the bald eagle, sea turtles to salmon.
● Studies have found C8 in the umbilical cord blood of every newborn baby tested.
