    Exposure to Teflon Chemical Did Not Affect Workers' Mortality Rates, DuPont Study Claims - Occupational Hazards
    The United Steelworkers union (USW) scoffed at DuPont's study claims, accusing the company of misrepresenting information on the health effects of PFOA and withholding data on the high levels of PFOA found in the blood of its employees.

    'DuPont is using this flawed study to justify the continued production of this controversial chemical and mislead the public into believing there is no evidence linking human health effects to PFOA exposure,' said April Dreeke, USW strategic campaigns researcher. 'We're demanding an immediate release of the complete study so the public does not have to rely on DuPont's word.'
