These chemicals consists of long molecules that contain carbon chains surrounded by flooring. That bond between carbon and flooring is incredibly tight. They interact so strongly with each other that the normal into molecular forces that cause substances to stick to each other don't stand a chance. While some types of PFC are either safe or well controlled, others freely enter our environment. And because PFCs are highly persistent, they can travel over great distances through water, air and soil. This means that once they enter the environment, PFCs do not disintegrate quickly and are therefore here to stay. We started using PFCs in the 19 fifties, and by now you can find them in remote areas around the world, like the Arctic and in glacial lakes. And even in our food, these chemicals appeared tohave toxic effects on living organisms, and once they enter a human body, they may stay upto 1000 days in the bloodstream, from where they can harm a developing foetus or even cause cancer.
