☣☢🎬Una delle tappe più importanti di #Controcorrente è quella del #Veneto. Abbiamo incontrato @greenpeace_ita @legambiente @faccedapfas per parlare dello scandalo della #Miteni che per decenni ha inquinato la falda acquifera versando #Pfas e nuovi inquinanti emergenti. Esiste una realtà identica e complementare in Virginia a causa della #DuPont, di cui ci parlò il Dott.Cordiano (@isde_italia ) che gli facemmo per il documentario, sempre Pfas, sempre versamenti illeciti nelle acque. Da qualche giorno è uscito @darkwatersmovie un film straordinario che racconta questa terribile storia che va avanti ormai da decenni. Andatelo a vedere. Fortunatamente il cinema sta diventando sempre di più portavoce delle emergenze ambientali, diventiamo noi un pubblico consapevole. ☢☣🎬

Heerlijk... en de media maakt er weer een spektakel van. Gelukkig zijn onze journalisten kort van geheugen en weten ze over een week niet meet wat #corona is. Vraag ze maar eens naar #pfas of #stikstof

Today is the International Polar Bear Day ❄️Every year, this global event draws attention to the challenges polar bears face and the urgent need to take action to ensure their future. #Polarbears not only face issues like #climatechange change but PCB (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) contamination as well. "PCBs are transported from industrialized areas of the Northern Hemisphere to the Arctic via air and ocean currents. They accumulate in marine food chains, with concentrations peaking in polar bears, killer whales and humans." https://arctic.au.dk/news-and-events/news/show/artikel/pcb-threatens-polar-bear-populations/

L'EFSA PROPONE DI ABBASSARE I LIMITI SU QUATTRO PFAS

L'Autorità europea per la sicurezza alimentare ( #Efsa) ha proposto di abbassare la dose settimanale tollerabile di un gruppo di quattro sostanze perfluoroalchiliche ( #Pfas), le più persistenti nell'ambiente. I Pfas sono sostanze largamente utilizzate in diversi settori industriali, ad esempio per rendere resistenti ai grassi e all'acqua i tessuti e i rivestimenti per contenitori di alimenti.

Il parere dell'Agenzia ne aggiorna uno precedente del 2018 su sole due sostanze prese individualmente, ed è stato realizzato grazie alla metodologia MixTox, finalizzata nel 2019, che consente di valutare il rischio per la salute di una miscela di chimici, noto anche come effetto cocktail. Efsa propone di fissare una dose settimanale tollerabile di 8 ng / kg di peso corporeo alla settimana per quattro Pfas. Il parere è in consultazione pubblica e tutti possono fornire dati, suggerimenti e indicazioni fino al 20 aprile.

Alla fine degli anni novanta Rob Bilott è appena diventato socio nel suo studio legale, e si gode una tranquilla vita familiare. Ma una visita in ufficio da parte di un contadino della Virginia gli cambia la vita per sempre: gli animali della fattoria si comportano in modo strano, e lui è convinto sia colpa dell'acqua del lago da cui si abbeverano. La stessa in cui il colosso della chimica Dupont sta scaricando rifiuti tossici da decenni...
--‐------------------------------------------
Una storia vera ventennale a (quasi) lieto fine per un film sobrio ed educativo secondo gli standard classici americani. Per chi ama il cinema verità

⚠️Se upp för PFAS i köket! ⚠️ Den här typen av symboler, där det står ”PFOA-free” är väldigt vanligt på köksredskap av Teflon och andra non-stick beläggningar. De förekommer också ofta tillsammans med små löv och grön färg🌿. Men PFOA är bara ett av över 4700 olika PFAS-ämnen, så bara för att produkten är PFOA-fri betyder det inte att den är PFAS-fri❗️Om du vill slippa PFAS i köket är det därför säkrast att välja till exempel gjutjärn och rostfritt stål istället för non-stick. 🍳

We look a bit like an ancient 1980's 60 Minutes segment called: "How Did We Get Into Iraq But Not Out of Colombia?" My take anyway, from the Security Police Academy in good ol' warm Texas. From the look of us, we probably could have frightened a few Pepsi Executives in an Arby's if the lighting was good, but as I would soon find out, Air Force SAC bases had so many drunks, addicts and criminal enterprises dancing around the periphery that we never would have noticed any imagined threats anyway. Why not Minot and what the actual hell FairRock? Hey it got me out of the increasingly dying Couve, but at what cost? Stay tuned, for whenever I can remember to revisit this. .

#PFAS chemicals are of concern because they have now been detected in groundwater, drinking water, and soils in many of our local communities. This creates a potential exposure pathway to humans and possible health risks. View our website to learn more about the treatment of PFAS.

An impressive man. Took on the mighty Corporate weight of DuPont re the “Forever Chemicals” that were used in the manafacture of Teflon and some of the biproducts poisoned local residents & workers causing a range of cancers and premature deaths. Against huge odds, 20 years on, he fought and won the case/s. (Am taking a leaf out of his book). Take a bow Robert A. Billot from Taft. The film “Dark Waters” where he is played by Mark Ruffalo is a must see. Unfortunately the excessive film noir shooting does not shed as much light on this tawdry tale as I’d like to see. A disturbing tale but it does not end there as these “Forever Chemicals” are floating down the River Thames and are in most of us!

We can’t see molecules of PFAS spreading throughout our environment, but they are there.

PFAS can be released into the environment at every stage of a product's lifecycle. They can be lost during chemical manufacture or as the chemicals are applied to the final product They can come off during use, transferring from packaging into the food we eat or as the rain washes bike oil from our chain.

PFAS outlive both the products that contain them and the people that buy them.
They have been recorded in our air, water, sediment, plants, and wildlife. They are found in rain, ground and tap water, rivers, lakes, oceans, and even the breast milk we feed our children.

To find out more, and sign our petition to ban PFAS from supermarket food packaging go to  https://www.pfasfree.org.uk/about-pfas

Meet Jenny. She lives in Wilmington but travels to the Leland Walmart to regularly fill her five gallon jug with water. She picks this location because the water dispenser—located in the back of the store, takes credit cards and that’s more convenient for her than trying to find loose change or keep the right kind of cash on hand.
Thank you, @jennycolvardart , for sharing your story. These are the *messages in a bottle* we are collecting to share with decision makers.

Join Dr. Alicia Stell this Thursday February 27th as she explores #extraction of #PFAS from mixed matrices.
Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 11am EST | 8am PST | 4pm GMT | 5pm CET

In recent months PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) has gained much media attention. PFAS are used in the manufacturing of a variety of products because of their oil, water, temperature, chemical, and fire resistance properties. Because of their chemical stability, these “forever chemicals” are used in products from non-stick cookware, to electronic devices, to low-emission automobiles. As these items are disposed of the PFAS pollute and accumulate in soils and water supplies. Humans exposure to these persistent chemicals, can lead to immune system effects, cancers, thyroid disruption, and other ailments.

Remediation of PFAS is largely not possible so accurate analysis of PFAS is critical to public safety. In the laboratory, PFAS analysis is difficult because PFAS-free componentry is essential for accurate analysis. Everything from sample-homogenizing equipment to extraction systems to liquid chromatography systems needs to be PFAS-free. In this webcast we will discuss homogenization and extraction protocols for a variety of matrices to optimize recovery. We will also discuss LC methods and results of these studies.

Key Learning Objectives: -Better understand PFAS analytical challenges
-Explore homogenization and extraction methods for PFAS
-Compare liquid chromatographic analysis of different PFAS-containing matrices
Who Should Attend: -Applicable to anyone involved in PFAS research or testing
-Environmental scientists
-Manufacturers of consumer goods

Merhaba güzel insanlar. Diz ağrısı hepimiz de sıklıkla çıkar lakin umursamayız.Yine de ben anlatıyım ,görevimdir.Sizi seviyorum. 🙏
Patellofemoral Ağrı Sendromu Nedir?
Patellofemoral ağrı dizde bağ yırtıkları, plika sendromu, bursitler, tendinitler gibi patolojiler dışında kalan diz kapağının, eklemin üzerinde düzgün bir şekilde kaymamasından kaynaklı diz ağrılarını kapsayan bir problemdir. Genç, fiziksel aktif bireyler arasında sık görülen ön diz ağrısıdır. Özellikle sporcu kadınlar olmak üzere kadınlarda görülme olasılığı erkeklere göre daha fazladır. Patellofemoral ağrı sendromu klinikte en çok karşılaşılan diz problemlerinden biridir.
Patellar bölgeye fazla yük binmesi, aşırı kullanım, sporcularda yanlış antrenman programı, kas kısalıkları, özellikle Vastus Medialis Oblikus ve kalça kaslarının zayıflığı, bacaktaki açısal değerler( Q açısı, femoral anteversiyon açısı gibi) Patellofemoral ağrı sendromu oluşumunda etkilidir.
Patellofemoral ağrı sendromunun tedavisinde amaç öncelikle ağrıyı ve patellar bölgeye binen yükü azaltmaktır. Daha sonra kas kuvvetinin ve düzgün biyomekaniğin sağlanarak yaralanmalara karşı yumuşak dokuyu korumaktır. Tedavisinde birçok farklı yöntem kullanılmaktadır. Öncelikle ağrıyı azaltmak için soğuk ajanlar ve elektroterapiden faydalanılır. Daha sonra kısa kaslar için yapılan germe egzersizleri ve dizde kademeli bir şekilde yükleme yapılarak ilerleyen kuvvetlendirme egzersizleri yer alır. Manuel terapi ile eklem mobilizasyonları, yumuşak dokunun mobilizasyonu diz bölgesinde ki ağrının azaltılmasında ve dolaşımın artmasına yardımcı olur. Patellofemoral ağrı sendromunda zayıf olan Vastus Medialis Oblikus diz kapağının içe hareketini yeteri kadar kontrol edemez ve bacağı düzelttiğimizde diz kapağı dışa doğru kayma gösterebilir. Kinezyo bantlama ile diz kapağının dışa hareketi sınırlandırılarak biyomekanik olarak düzgünlük elde edilebilir. Aynı zamanda Quadriceps Femoris kasına yapılan bantlama ile kas aktivasyonu sağlanabilir. Patellofemoral ağrı sendromu gözden kaçar ancak fizik tedaviye muhtaçtır.

This week a Joint Letter - signed by Dark Waters lawyer Robert Bilott and lead actor Mark Ruffalo along with dozens of leading experts and representatives from NGOs across the UK - is calling for the UK government to take action on toxic PFAS chemicals.

The signatories include UN Special Rapporteur Baskut Tuncak, UK Green Party Deputy Leader Amelia Womack, as well as representatives from Breast Cancer UK, Greenpeace UK, Child Rights International Network and leading academics and scientists.
The letter states, “This ongoing, and largely unregulated, toxification of our environment is a generational catastrophe that cannot be allowed to continue. There is no ongoing effort to clean up the widespread PFAS pollution in our environment, so we need stringent regulation now that stops it at its source.” More specifically, the letter “calls on the Government to introduce comprehensive legislation restricting the use of all PFAS in paper and board food packaging.” Read the full letter and list of signatures here: https://www.pfasfree.org.uk/uncategorised/joint-letter-ministers

Things NC could be doing to *lead the way* on our massive PFAS contamination problem: | NC's General Assembly needs to stop being jerks and start working with state agencies to address why NC continues to top national lists for PFAS contamination. | State lawmakers could empower state agencies to test all bottled water in NC for PFAS chemicals. | State lawmakers could do what New Hampshire is doing and set health protective limits for PFAS chemicals in tap water. | State lawmakers could require all bottled water sold in NC be tested for PFAS chemicals before hitting a store shelf.

Reach out to your lawmaker and ask them where they stand on supporting these initiatives!! #whywefight #genx #pfas #cleancapefear

Residents of Belmont, Michigan are taking corporate behemoths 3M and Wolverine Worldwide to court for contaminating their town’s groundwater with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances — collectively called PFASs.⁣

Known as “forever chemicals” because they don’t fully degrade in the environment, these industrial compounds have been found in air, water, soil, and in the bodies of most people, and have been linked to a laundry list of health problems.⁣

Some Belmont residents — including members of the Wynn-Stelt (photos 1, 2), Carney (3, 4, 5), and McNaughton (6, 7, 8) families — have had PFAS levels in their blood dozens to hundreds of times higher than the national average.⁣

Legal cases involving pollution exposures and a claim of negligence are both common and, for those who bring the lawsuits, frequently disappointing, partly due to the lack thus far of concrete evidence linking PFAS exposure absolutely with any medical problems.⁣

These realties are partly behind a novel legal approach that the attorneys representing the Belmont families attempted — a claim called “toxic battery.”⁣

In modern law, battery is defined as intentional harmful or offensive contact with another person, a punch or a kick most obviously, but also any act that sets in motion a force to harm another person.⁣

If a company contaminates groundwater and those contaminants wind up in someone’s drinking glass, that might not sound immediately like battery, but some legal scholars say it should. ⁣

To supporters, it’s a bold new avenue for argument that could ultimately prove successful against industries that have historically enjoyed the latitude to expose first and answer questions later. ⁣

But skeptics argue that toxic battery claims face high hurdles. ⁣

To learn more, hit the link in our bio or head to Undark.org and read Sara Talpos’ full investigation: “Industrial Pollution Is in Your Blood. Is That a Form of Battery?”⁣

She is using her lab knowledge and microbiology degree to help  her town of Pittsboro achieve the basic human right of clean drinking water. I’m so glad I met her over 20 years ago in (ironically) Watertown, NY.

"I'm a lawyer, and I'll be the first to say that people should not have to go to court for this."
-Robert Bilott

We were excited to bring a preview screening of DARK WATERS to a packed UGC Brussels last Tuesday along with an expert panel including lawyer Rob Bilott himself!

Think-Film founder Danielle Turkov moderated an exciting panel with ECHA Executive Director  Bjorn Hansen, EEB's Tatiana Santos, UN Special Rapporteur on Hazardous Chemicals in Waste Baskut Tuncak, and ETUI's Marian Schaapman.

Thank you to everybody who attended such a fantastic event.

SEE DARK WATERS IN BELGIAN CINEMAS 26 FEBRUARY!

Top #PFAS posts

For me, @darkwatersmovie is a chance to combine two things I'm most passionate about: storytelling and activism. It was an honor to stand before lawmakers today with real-life heroes Rob Bilott, Mark Favors, Bucky Bailey, @environmentalworkinggroup, and @nrdc_org to urge them to take immediate action to regulate #PFAs. Our leaders have the power to do something about forever chemicals, they just need to act. And they need to act fast. You can join me today in demanding action against #PFAs at fightforeverchemicals.com, link in my bio. Together, we can ensure communities across the country receive the safety they deserve.

Just a quick chat with @markruffalo about PFAS in Hoosick Falls and the need for a guarantee of clean water as a human right. Forever chemicals are everywhere and until we regulate them at the federal level, we will continue to see their damaging effects across our communities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #pfas #hoosickfalls #cleanwater #foreverchemicals #cleanwaterforall #pfoafree #darkwaters #darkwatersmovie

Incredible night filming at Thalian Hall with Mark Ruffalo while screening his film "Dark Waters" about PFAS chemicals in our drinking water which we are currently drinking here in North Carolina....

The army Corp of engineers have no empathy for what they have done and continue to do . You would think after the city of Stuart started to take action against the dumping they would stop but I guess not seeing they are still dumping in to the stluice . They may not be letting water out of the lake but they are definitely letting the canals flush out . Which still hold alot of contaminated lake water like get a clue dumping is dumping toxicwater is toxicwater . 🚱☢️🍊🐟⚗️🎣🌴☠️🧯

Let’s talk about compostable containers.

Recent studies show that molded fiber food packaging contain toxic chemicals called “PFAs”. PFAs have been given the name “forever chemicals” because they do not breakdown, instead they gradually accumulate. So when that bowl ends up in the compost bin, it then goes into the soil, and subsequently contaminates our food and water sources.

While it may satisfy our zero waste commitments to place these items in the compost bin, we are then sacrificing the health of our communities and ecosystems. The best option? Bring a reusable container whenever possible!

Det är många som undrar vad PFAS-ämnena heter, alltså vad man ska hålla utkik efter när man kollar på innehållsförteckningen på produkter. 🔍 Det här är ”namnen” PFAS kan ha i smink och andra skönhetsprodukter:
❌PTFE
❌Polytef
❌Alla ord som innehåller “perfluoro” eller “polyfluoro”, till exempel “Perfluorooctyl Triethoxysilane”.
Några specialare som också är PFAS men heter något annat:
❌C9-15 (eller C8-18) Fluoroalcohol Phosphate
❌Decafluoropentane
❌Dimethiconol Fluoroalcohol Dilinoleic Acid
❌Trifluoropropyl Dimethiconol
❌Octafluoropentyl Methacrylate

På vår sida surfejs.se under fliken ”värstingämnen” har vi skrivit ett inlägg som handlar om vad PFAS är och vilka typer av produkter vi hittat PFAS-ämnen i! 🙌🏾 #PFAS #smink #nejtillpfas

Filming b-roll at the Haw River, the source for tap water for Pittsboro, NC. I interviewed a couple who participated in a Duke study about their water quality with and without a reverse osmosis filtration system. There are many contaminants to be concerned about, mostly created by industries up river. #pfas #waterquality #drinkingwater #hawriver #pittsboro #producer #preditor #onemanband #scicomm #journalist #pr

”Forever chemicals”⚠️. Så kallar man PFAS i USA. Ett väldigt passande namn eftersom PFAS inte bryts ner i naturen. Allt vi släpper ut kommer alltså att bli kvar i miljön, kanske för alltid❗️Och halterna kommer att fortsätta öka så länge vi fortsätter att släppa ut dem⚠️.Vi har släppt ut så mycket nu att alla människor och djur har PFAS i blodet 🤢. Det finns i växter, i jorden och i vattnet. Över 4700 olika PFAS-ämnen finns ute på marknaden och de används i allt möjligt, som matförpackningar, kläder, brandskum och skönhetsprodukter😢. Vilka effekter PFAS har på människor vet vi nästan ingenting om. Endast ett fåtal PFAS-ämnen är ordentligt undersökta. De som ÄR undersökta har visat sig orsaka en rad olika sjukdomar som cancer och leverskador. Forsking visar även en koppling till sämre immunförsvar och lägre födelsevikt hos barn. Den dagen vi får redan på vad alla PFAS-ämnen gör med människors hälsa kommer det att vara för sent att vända utvecklingen ⚠️. PFAS måste stoppas NU!
