PFAS: The “New” Forever Chemicals
The term “forever chemicals” has become part of the lexicon in lay science. This reflects the growing evidence that exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a class of synthetic chemicals widely detected in our natural environment, our foods, and our bodies, is associated with adverse human health effects and harm...
