Blood will be tested for PFOA

BENNINGTON — The Vermont Department of Health began drawing blood Friday from residents of North Bennington who may have been exposed to high levels of a potentially harmful chemical, although Dr. Harry Chen, commissioner of the health department, said the results may provide little guidance for those people.

“There is no specific treatment to actually get rid of PFOA. … It goes away, but slowly. About half of it goes away in two to four years, and then another half in another two to four years,” Chen said.

The blood-draw clinics are expected to continue through May 12, with an additional date, May 24, for students who are currently away at college.
