Wel­come re­lief

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

AS A former re­mote area fire­fighter who had years of ex­po­sure to fire­fight­ing chem­i­cal re­tar­dants, I, for one, was pleased to note the low/no risk find­ings of the in­de­pen­dent panel of ex­perts who un­der­took the risk as­sess­ment of PFAS at air­ports. Given some of the re­cent lo­cal com­men­tary you could be for­given for think­ing that some peo­ple would have been hap­pier if the re­port had found it to be highly toxic and about to wipe us all out.

For rea­sons best known to them­selves, it seems like some peo­ple won’t rest un­til they can find some sec­ond opinion ‘ex­pert’ to come up with find­ings that would bet­ter suit an out­come that they were looking for.
