    Chemicals in Fast Food Wrappers Show Up in Human Blood
    by Environment News Service

    TORONTO, Ontario, Canada - Chemicals used to keep grease from leaking through fast food wrappers and microwave popcorn bags are migrating into food, being ingested by people and showing up as contaminants in blood, according to new research at the University of Toronto.

They are used in surface protection products such as carpet and clothing treatments and coating for paper and cardboard packaging.

    Earlier research by University of Toronto environmental chemists Scott Mabury and Jessica D'eon, established in 2007 that the wrappers are a source of these chemicals in human blood. Their new study shows that perfluorinated chemicals can migrate from wrappers into food.

    This is similar to companies mixing shampoos and body washes with industrial oil degreasers. These degreasers are used to clean car engines, floors, and carparets.
