PFOA Contaminant in Cincinnati OH

There has been some news recently about a chemical called PFOA (sometimes referred to as C8) being found in the Ohio River. PFOA is a compound used in Teflon to manufacture nonstick cookware, stain resistant fabrics, and even some food wrappers. PFOA has also recently been found to be toxic? What does this mean for Cincinnati? For starters, it can get in our drinking water. 12 water systems in 10 counties across Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia have detected PFOA in the water.
