"In animal studies they have been linked to cancer and developmental problems. Research into their health impact in humans is ongoing." What? You mean PFCs aren't good for animals or humans? I'm hoping that someone is smart enough to make 3M set aside $$ to cover potential medical expenses for residents of the southeast metro if future research shows that these PFCs cause cancer in humans as well.

Clean water is a considerable challenge. I do think state/city funding needs to be delegated to ensure residents are not consuming poisons when the drink city water.

Which is more outrageous? That 3M still releases PFC's into the Mississippi or that they don't think they should be responsible for cleaning up their legacy pollution. Either way it paints a picture of a company that strategically increases its profits by poisoning its neighbors. A non-corporate citizen that acted like 3M would be thrown in prison.
