PFAS

Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of around 9,000 artificial compounds used for manufacturing products to make them water and stain resistant. They are called “forever chemicals” because they are not biodegradable and are capable of accumulating in human body. A new study revealed that the PFAS contamination in breast milk may be universal in the United States. The tested samples had nearly 2,000 times higher PFAS levels than prescribed by the experts.
