'Deformed calves' born after fire


news.bbc.co.uk

An inquiry has begun into claims that chemicals used to tackle the Buncefield oil fire have caused deformities in newborn calves on a nearby farm.

Hertfordshire MP Mike Penning raised the issue in parliament saying a farmer blamed the deformities on the use of perfluorooctanesulphate (PFOS).

Seems a reasonable theory from the farmers perspective.

If true, then the possible broad use of this chemical has far wider implications.

Is it used in every fire fighting foam? If so, this foam is regularly used all over the UK and I highly suspect is used globally as it makes 'sales sense' to be marketed for all fire fighters.

It's funny how, when apparently interviewed, the fire service suddenly come up with the statement of the foam being voluntarily phased out.
Did they know in the first place?

Just how many other animals or humans have suffered some form of illness caused by the use of this chemical?

We may never know, but these calves have obviously highlighted a very important issue.

Has the world forgotten that water works wonder on fire?
