PCB Still Affecting the Health of Americans

Tools

By Molly Clifton

The cancer-causing chemical known as PCB still affects the health of older Americans, even though it’s been outlawed in the U.S. since 1979.

A new study found a link between PCB which can be found in water and soil to lower cognitive abilities among 70 to 84 year olds.

The link was weaker with adults in their 60s.
