Current scientific research suggests exposure to high levels of certain PFAS may lead to adverse health outcomes. However, research is still ongoing to determine how different levels of exposure to different PFAS can lead to a variety of health effects.  epa.gov/pfas/our-curre…
For a refresher, PFAS are a group of manufactured chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s because of their useful properties. There are thousands of different PFAS, some of which have been more widely used and studied than others.
Want to learn more about how to use our #PFAS Analytic Tools and about how the data is collected? Join our webinar 💻 Tuesday, January 10 at 1:00 PM EST.usepa.zoomgov.com/webinar/regist…k
We've launched our #PFAS Analytics Tools webpage – an interactive site that provides information about PFAS across the country. This webpage shows the public (YOU) where testing has been done and what level of detections were measured. echo.epa.gov/trends/pfas-to…
Nine PFAS have been added to the Toxics Release Inventory list. Data includes quantities of chemicals released into the environment or managed as waste, allowing communities to learn how facilities in their area are managing listed PFAS chemicals. epa.gov/newsreleases/e…
What is soot? Soot – also known as fine particle pollution or PM2.5 – can penetrate deep into the lungs and can result in serious health effects including asthma, heart attacks and premature death. Vulnerable populations like children and older adults are most at risk.
