Uncovering where (and how much) of the environmental contaminant PFAS chemical is in products, food, soil, water and human bodies just became near impossible for research scientists.
McDonald’s, has promised to remove toxic PFAS forever chemicals from food packaging by 2025.
The Marine Mammal Center has discovered what is causing a pervasive and aggressive form of cancer in sea lions…Scientists connected the fatal cancer with leaking barrels filled with chemicals that were dumped off the coast of Los Angeles, California in the 1960’s.

The results of new research indicate that people with prediabetes or diabetes who live in ozone-polluted areas may have an increased risk for irreversible interstitial lung disease with a high mortality rate.
Because of the link between PFAS chemical exposure and diminished effectiveness of some vaccines, the U.S. CDC is examining whether exposure to the “forever chemicals” PFAS could affect the potential effectiveness and duration of a Covid-19 vaccine.
Just touching store receipts and boarding passes can be dangerous to your health. A rapidly growing body of scientific evidence strongly suggests that commonly used thermal paper chemical BPS, like its predecessor BPA, disrupts hormones and harms reproductive, developmental, metabolic and cardiovascular health.
