FIRST DUPONT C8 CASES HIT FEDERAL COURT THIS WEEK - Fourteen Years Since Toxic Issue Surfaced

(09/14/2015)

The first of a half-dozen federal trials over the effects of DuPont's C8 (Teflon) in Wood County is to begin this week, fourteen years since the pollution issue over public health surfaced.

The 3,500 plaintiffs in these lawsuits are required to prove that C-8 was the specific cause of their disease.

Some estimates say that several million dollars have been invested in defending Dupont.

In many of these cases the jury will need to consider the impact of other factors such as family history, lifestyle choices and other causes of health issues and disease in specific individuals.

The cases are expected to go on for years.

Independent scientific studies say that the toxicity of C8 on human beings are cause agents to numerous diseases.

Dupont officials continue to say there is no health problem.
