Quotes from the news wire:
You’d have to drink an incredible amount of water — we estimate a month of contaminated water — to get the same exposure as you would from a single serving of freshwater fish, consuming even a single (locally caught freshwater) fish per year can measurably and significantly change the levels of PFOS in your blood.
It seems likely that some of it is getting absorbed into the blood long after the sunscreen applications and in part that is why levels in blood stay high weeks after application, the skin is not a perfect barrier and so absorption of small amounts of chemicals from sunscreens( and indeed other skin care products such as cosmetics) is to be expected.
For years the sunscreen chemical manufactures have resisted common sense safety testing for their ingredients and now FDA is proposing that these common ingredients must undergo additional testing to stay on the market.
