PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals that continue to be released into the environment throughout the lifecycle of manufacturing, processing, distribution in commerce, use, and disposal. Each action in this cycle creates environmental contamination and human and ecological exposure. Many PFAS are used in industrial processes and applications, such as in the manufacturing of other chemicals and products. The current body of scientific evidence clearly indicates that there are real, present, and significant hazards associated with specific PFAS.
Studies in laboratory animals indicate some PFAS can cause reproductive, developmental, liver, kidney, and immunological toxicity. Studies in laboratory animals indicate some PFAS can cause reproductive, developmental, liver, kidney, and immunological toxicity. Some PFAS can cause adverse effects on the respiratory system following acute inhalation exposures.
