What are PFAS/Forever Chemicals?

PFAS stands for perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances. It is a group of man-made chemicals that include Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA).

These chemicals are persistent, so they will not break down in the environment. This means it also bioaccumulates in our bodies, therefore the amount in our body increases over time.

PFAS chemicals were originally used as repellents. However, there wasn’t enough data or information to show the long-term effects until the 2000s. Many companies began phasing out the production of PFAS, with all production halted in 2015.

How We’re Exposed

We’re exposed either through inhalation or swallowing. For example, workers who use PFAS or work with materials with PFAS are exposed through inhalation. However, consumers are exposed to them through our drinking water, food, or the packaging products we use. Additionally, people can be exposed to PFAS when eating fish.

Although we can either inhale or swallow the chemicals, there are three main sources for how that exposure gets to us.

Food & Food Packaging

  • Packaging material contains PFAS
  • Packaging processed with equipment using PFAS
  • Food was grown in contaminated water or soil
  • Fish swimming in PFAS-contaminated water

Water

  • Industrial sites that used PFAS to manufacture other products lead to water contamination
  • Locations used for firefighting, oil refineries, and airfields.

How Did PFAS Forever Chemicals Get In Our Water?

PFAS chemicals are getting into our water in a few different ways. The chemicals enter our environment in the areas where they’re produced, used, disposed of, or spilled. From there, the chemicals are mobile and picked up through rainwater run-off. Then, it enters our water sources (like lakes, ponds, and rivers), or it seeps into our soil where it then migrates into our groundwater (our underground source).
