PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and many other chemicals. PFAS have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the world since the 1940s.
These chemicals are resistant to heat, oil, water, and stains. That’s why they’re often used in products like non-stick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain-resistant fabrics, and carpeting. They’re also used in firefighting foams because they help extinguish fires quickly.
We have a wide variety of articles about PFAS to help you better understand these chemicals and the potential health effects associated with exposure.
