Tips for Families

98% of Americans have PFAS—human-made chemicals— in their blood. The most common exposure is through consumer products (think nonstick, stain resistant, waterproof, and greaseproof items). Some people have heightened exposure through drinking water, particularly if water sources are near PFAS-producing industrial plants, military bases, firefighting training areas, or municipal airports that use PFAS-containing foam as a fire suppressant. No matter where your exposure comes from, there are steps your family can take to reduce overall PFAS exposure.

Find out what you can do at home to reduce PFAS exposure.
