The Wednesday Wetness

What appears to be happening is that “environmental scientists” are exposing animals to high levels of these compounds in their experiments, then projecting those findings to trace levels in the environment to which humans can be exposed.
Human health effects from exposure to low environmental levels of PFAS are uncertain.

Studies of laboratory animals given large amounts of PFAS indicate that some PFAS may affect growth and development. In addition, these animal studies indicate PFAS may affect reproduction, thyroid function, the immune system, and injure the liver.
With all of this in mind, it is not surprising that Biden’s EPA is now hitting up the nation’s water supply with new rules related to PFAS chemicals. Eco-activists aim to entirely eliminate theses substances from use.

Environmentalist are a bit like sharks are reputed to be, unable to stop swimming forward because they need to move forward into new water to stay alive. There is a constant need for more issues, chemicals to regulate for more costs, and less gain to the public.

  1. Classical misuse of Linear Response Theory, which is not necessarily valid for chemical exposures. Biological systems react very differently to different doses of a chemical. Imagine if this theory was applied to vaccines, which at their core are a complete refutation of LRT.
