PFAS: Man-Made Contaminant the “Forever Chemical”

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), once used in everything from dental floss to microwave popcorn bags, are now being recognized as threatening toxic chemicals that pose health risks to populations across the country.

White Paper Summary

PFAS are man-made fluorinated chemical compounds found in a vast array of commercial and consumer products. PFAS contaminants have been found in drinking water nationwide, exposing virtually everyone to some level of  exposure. The U.S. government has reported that 98% of the population has detectable levels of PFAS in their blood. Of major concern, a result of one of the chemical properties of PFAS is that they are nearly impervious to biological or chemical degradation and therefore, unless treated, will remain in the soil and groundwater indefinitely, which has led to their nickname “forever chemical”.
