ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study released by DuPont regarding perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). It concludes that there is no increased mortality risk in workers exposed to PFOA. The study conducted by DuPont's epidemiologists examined the role of 6,027 people who had worked at DuPont's facility in Washington, West Virginia between 1948 and 2002. The study also examined the causes of death of those who had died and compared the mortality rates with those found in other DuPont workers, residents of West Virginia and the U.S. population.
