C8, a chemical used to make Teflon, was manufactured at the DuPont Washington Works facility in Parkersburg, Virginia. In 2005, DuPont reached a settlement in a C8 class action lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of 70,000 people who lived and worked in the vicinity of the DuPont Washington Works plant. Following the C8 Class Action lawsuit, the Wood County Circuit Court appointed the C8 Science Panel to investigate the amount of C8 exposure and possible health links. The C8 Science Panel looked at a number of studies, including one that involved 32,000 people who were interviewed between 2009 and 2011. Using records of past emissions from the DuPont plant and the residential history of study subjects, the Panel estimated the level of C8 in the blood of the subjects over time before cancer occurred. The panel found as C8 levels increased, the rate of kidney cancer was 20 to 60 percent higher compared to those with the lowest level of exposure. (Leach v. E.I. Du Pont De Nemours & Co., No. 01-C-608 (W. Va. Cir. Ct.)) [c8sciencepanel.org/index.html, October 2012]

In addition to kidney cancer, the C8 Science Panel concluded in October 2012 that there were probable links between exposure to C8 contaminated drinking water and several other illnesses, including:

  •         Thyroid disease
  •         Testicular cancer
