What you should know about health effects
There is limited health information available about GenX and other compounds found in Wilmington’s water at this moment, but public pressure and new scientific interest have just begun. The mystery behind GenX in water will soon be unraveled citizens demand to know the toll this chemical has taken on their bodies.
GenX is a chemical used in the manufacturing of fluoropolymer resins, used for nonstick coatings and other products. It was developed and introduced by DuPont in 2009 as a replacement for PFOA or C8, another compound found to be toxic if ingested and very harmful to people.
PFOA or C8 was also unregulated like GenX is today, but EPA phased it out of the industry after a class-action lawsuit alleged it caused cancer. That lawsuit was recently settled.
GenX is very similar in structure to PFOA and others in the family of fluorinated compounds, which we already know can cause kidney and testicular cancer, impaired fetal development, and effects on the liver, thyroid, and immune system in laboratory tests with rats.
Dr. Susanne Brander, a toxicologist at UNC Wilmington, and other scientists have expressed in public forums and the media that to understand GenX, we should look at its predecessor to get an idea of what could be expected.
