    I read the title too fast and thought it said “PEAS” and thought, “that son of a b found something wrong with peas WOW.”

    Hmmmm… Dangerous chemical practically unregulated in the US; this sounds a lot like something…. *checks Internet* …yup, something strictly regulated and partially outlawed in the EU.

    The Old World may be boring, but they have better environmental regs.

    So Oliver cares about passing PFAS to the next generation but not trillions of government spending debt. Right. DuPont dumping those chemicals happened in DE. Why didn’t Joe Biden stand up to that?

    All jokes aside, devil’s piss or HF in one of the most dangerous substances on earth. It has to be stored in plastic containers because it melts glass. It is used to regenerate glass electrodes used in pH meter. When ingested it will kill you in the worst possible way – by messing with your body’s ability to use Ca2+ as a signaling pathways in cellular function. You end up dying from multi-organ failure. Grim.

    I cannot begin to thank myself in the past for paying attention in chemistry class and deciding that either ceramic glazed pots or stainless steel pots are the way to go. Sure, hassle to deal with cleaning, but you know what? You can just buy new ones if things get unbearable. Fuck teflon coated pans, and majorly bore hole fuck all the CEOs in the companies that knew teflon was bad mojo and still used it.

    Companies selling shit with convenience in spite of what it can actually do to people’s health and wellbeing is the story of the last 70 years. Shit like this needs to be stopped as soon as possible.

    Yeah my town is now a science experiment because of this stuff. Every few years they ask for volunteers to give blood samples to see how long it lasts in the body and who dies of cancer
