Chemicals in packaging, carpets and non-stick pans 'may contribute to obesity' | Science | The Guardian
Chemicals used to make non-stick pots and pans, stain-resistant carpets, and food packaging may contribute to high levels of obesity by disrupting the body’s ability to burn calories, scientists say.

Researchers at Harvard University examined the effects of compounds called perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which have already raised concerns among some health experts after animal experiments and other studies linked them to cancer, high cholesterol and immune problems.

GMO in Fodder aka animal feed, livestock feed. and Fodder also can contain ground up meat waste from other animals (see “mad cow” disease instance). farmed fish eating ground up male chicken. Or in EU pig fodder (Schweinefutter) containing too high toxin called dioxin ( http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs225/en/ ). Or in other instance added hormones to fatten pigs quicker that show up in the meat and are thus hormones that people ingest unkowingly, low-dose long-time, ... // in a commercialised profit driven environment, nothing is wasted. NOTHING. If the consumer doesn't eat the ground up food waste, then its processed and added to Fodder. // Do you really know what you are eating?

The Chemical in Cupcake Wrappers and Cookware Might Be Causing Cancer | Mother Jones
C8 is in a chemical family called PFCs (perfluorinated chemicals)—the same water- and stain-proofing class of chemicals used to make rain gear, pizza box and popcorn bag liners, stainproof upholstery treatments, and those waxy slips that hold pastries at cafes. Dozens of studies have linked PFCs to all sorts of health problems, from kidney and testicular cancer to increased risk of miscarriages. (3M phased out the chemical from production in 2002 due to potential health hazards.) [...] PFC contamination may not be isolated to the Ohio Valley. According to an Environmental Working Group (EWG) report that uses recent EPA data, C8 has been found in the drinking water in 94 counties serving more than 6 million Americans. (An interactive version of this map is available here.) [...] The EPA is in the process of investigating C8's health effects; in the meantime, it has set voluntary C8 safety standards to be used by utility companies. [...] avoid nonstick, stainproof, or waterproof items

BPA disrupts immune system, weakens immune system, makes it dysfunctional ... test in rats has shown.
BPA disrupts the hormonal system, starts already in embryonic stage ... leading to infertility in men (ie).

Food Industry does not acknowledging health risks. Independent studies have shown risk in rats.

Food packaged in cans, cartons and plastic full of BPA and other chemicals that permeate into the food and endanger human health long-term.

#Corporate Governance
#Capitalism
#Society, Consumers looking away - ignorant. ala "It doesn't bother me right now, why should I care right now?!"
#WILLFULL IGNORANCE.

arrogance of willful ignorance, the long-term impacts of short-term decisions. And historians have seen it all before.
