In the 1950s the Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) family of chemicals was developed to manufacture stain-resistant, water-resistant, and non-stick products. PFAS have been widely used in non-stick pans, food packaging, stain repellent clothing, carpets, leather goods, carpets, firefighting foam and even some cosmetic products. Because PFAS chemicals don’t readily breakdown in ground water they became an important emerging health issue nationwide. It eventually became apparent that exposure to PFAS in drinking water leads to many adverse human health effects including cancer and thyroid problems.
PFAS chemicals in water have been detected nationwide at over 2,230 Sites in 49 States. Over 20 local Massachusetts towns with PFAS water concerns include Acton, Littleton, Danvers, Hudson, Westfield, Easton, Hyannis, Bedford, and others.

During the past few years governments around the world have passed regulations to limit and reduce PFASs. Unfortunately PFAS are still prevalent and can accumulate in the human body but the good news is that we can take precautions to eliminate them from our food products, water to prevent potential health issues. This includes choosing healthy cookware (stainless steel or glassware), eating more at home and the purification of your water
