Farmer Uncovers Company’s Dark Secret After Cows Kept Dying: ‘an Imminent And Substantial Threat ...

Posted: Jan 14, 2023

Despite their name, “forever chemicals” haven’t been widely understood for very long –– by most members of the public, at least.

And if it weren’t for one West Virginia farmer, Wilbur Tennant, we still might not know much about them.

Back in the ‘90s, Tennant noticed something strange was happening to his cows. No matter how much he fed them, they kept losing weight, developing tumors, and dying, reported the Chicago Tribune.

Considering that the farm was situated near a DuPont factory and landfill, Tennant figured something might be amiss. As it turned out, waste from the factory, which produced Teflon nonstick products, had made its way into a nearby stream, poisoning the cows that were drinking from it.

What are forever chemicals?

Because of Tennant’s persistence, it was discovered that these DuPont products contained perfluorooctanoic acid, also known as a PFOA. PFOAs are now called “forever chemicals,” because they essentially don’t degrade in the environment and stay in the human body for a very long time, causing disease.
