A new medical alert awareness article concerning PFCs came out today:

A group of compounds called PFCs, found in many products and especially in non-stick cookware, may influence the health of the baby in the womb and after birth.

The findings agree with previous studies on the effect of PFC exposure during in-utero development. A recent study in Denmark found that girls exposed to PFCs in the womb were more likely to be overweight at age 20, said study researcher Michele Marcus, a professor of epidemiology at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health.
