Children’s protection from vaccines weakened by halogenated chemical exposure

In a paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Philippe Grandjean, et al. found that perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) may reduce children’s protection from vaccinations. The study, Serum Vaccine Antibody Concentrations in Children Exposed to Perfluorinated Compounds found that higher PFC levels were associated with lowered antibody levels. PFCs are pervasive compounds found in Teflon coatings, furniture, stain-resistant carpeting, rain gear, and microwave popcorn bags. They migrate out and end up in household dust, water and food.
