WHAT ARE PFAS?

PFAS are a diverse group of compounds resistant to heat, water, and oil. For decades, they have been used in hundreds of industrial applications and consumer products such as carpeting, apparel, upholstery, certain paper food packaging, firefighting foams, and metal plating.

PFAS are bioaccumulative, and can build up in the bloomstream and human tissue. Since at least the 80s, research has found links between PFOS and PFOA (2 common PFAS chemicals) and a number of health problems such as: chronic kidney disease, thyroid issues, certain types of cancers, etc. More recent research is establishing some of the same health issues with many other PFAS compounds, including those intended to replace PFOS and PFOA.
