What Are PFASs?
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 and air 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 in Water
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.

PFAS in Air
Because PFASs are highly mobile they can be easily be breathed into our lungs. When we walk on carpet containing PFAS or wear treated clothing then PFASs become airborne and settle in dust which we can then breathe.
Protect Yourself from PFAS - Aqualite knows the Science behind Safe, Healthy Water and Air Solutions!
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 elimate them from our food products, water and air to prevent potential health issues. This includes chosing healthy cookware (stainless steel or glassware), eating more at home and the purification of your water and air.
