TEST YOUR WATER FOR PFOA & PFOS CONTAMINANTS
WHAT ARE PFOA and PFOS CONTAMINANTS?
According to the EPA,
“PFOA and PFOS are fluorinated organic chemicals that are part of a larger group of chemicals referred to as perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). PFOA and PFOS have been the most extensively produced and studied of these chemicals. They have been used to make carpets, clothing, fabrics for furni- ture, paper packaging for food and other materials (e.g., cookware) that are resistant to water, grease or stains. They are also used for firefighting at air- fields and in a number of industrial processes.”
WHY SHOULD YOU BE CONCERNED?
According to a study of more than 69,000 people done by the C8 Science Panel—an independent group of epidemiologists, who are scientists trained in gathering information to evaluate whether environmental factors may or may not be causing disease in groups of people—those who had been exposed to higher-than-normal levels of PFAS had an elevated risk of:
- High cholesterol
- Ulcerative colitis
- Thyroid disease
- Testicular cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Pregnance-induced hypertension
YOUR NEXT STEP:
“The most dangerous way that people are exposed to PFAS is through drinking water,” says Don Huber, director of product safety at Consumer Reports.
