Sorry, no etymologies found.
As reported by University of Toronto researchers, the chemicals studied in human blood, urine and feces were polyfluoroalkyl phosphate esters (PAPs), which are the breakdown products of the perfluorinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs) used in coating the food wrappers.
PFCAs that have been worrying doctors and global regulatory agencies for a decade likely come from paper junk food wrappers.
These are broken down in the body into a number of PFCAs, which have been the subject of intense study on potential health effects.
