redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at NIST's Hollings Marine Laboratory (HML) and four partner organizations have measured for the first time concentrations of 13 perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) in five endangered species of sea turtles. While PFC toxicology studies have not yet been conducted on turtles, the levels of the compounds seen in all five species approach the amounts known to cause unfavorable health effects in other animals. PFCs are...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are linked to the lowering of children's immune response to vaccinations. Perfluorinated compounds are chemicals used in manufactured products, including but not limited to waterproof clothing, fast-food packaging, and non-stick cookware. Most Americans have the chemical compounds in their bodies. A team of researchers led by Philippe...

Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), a synthetic class of chemicals which are found in a variety of everyday items, have been found in the human body decades after exposure and are believed to lead to earlier menopause and reduced fertility among women. Some of the products that PFCs are found in include non-stick frying pans, waterproof clothing and fast food wrappers. A new study is bringing to light clues that high exposure to PFCs in the womb or in childhood could also limit the protection...

A new study finds that perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), widely used in manufactured products such as non-stick cookware, waterproof clothing, and fast-food packaging, were associated with lowered immune response to vaccinations in children. It is the first study to document how PFCs, which can be transferred to children prenatally (via the mother) and postnatally from exposure in the environment, can adversely affect vaccine response. The study appears in the January 25, 2012 issue of the...

Elevated exposures in children to perfluorinated compounds, which are widely used in manufacturing and food packaging, were associated with lower antibody responses to routine childhood immunizations, according to a study in the January 25 issue of JAMA. "Fluorine-substituted organic compounds have thousands of important industrial and manufacturing applications and occur widely in surfactants and repellants in food packaging and textile impregnation. The perfluorinated compounds (PFCs)...
