Research links cholesterol and nonstick coating chemical

A Reuters article from states that chemicals used to make non-stick coatings on cookware and to waterproof fabrics may raise levels of cholesterol in children.
Researcher Stephanie Frisbee of West Virginia University and her colleagues examined cholesterol levels that were 4.6 points higher and LDL levels that were 3.8 points higher than those with the lowest levels of PFOA.
PFOA is ingested in many ways such as through drinking water, dust, food packaging, air and occupational exposure and many more. Additionally the study used more than 12,000 children that had PFOA in their drinking water.
