High levels of PFCs may bring early menopause
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Chemicals found in everyday household items, including non-stick pans, clothes, carpets and paint, have been linked to early menopause.
A new study of more than 25,000 women found high levels of per fluoro carbons, or PFCs, in those who had early menopause.
The women who experienced early menopause also had a sizeable decrease in their estrogen levels.
Chemical companies say their product is safe, but the Environmental Protection Agency has expressed concern about its effect on humans and wildlife.
