Sustainable Jungle Podcast - Forever Chemicals with Meg Carney

Podcast #72 · Meg Carney · Forever Chemicals

“The reason that [PFAS] is so good at causing health problems is because it bioaccumulates so the chemicals themselves can attach to our fatty tissues…so oftentimes if we have a PFAS enter our body from drinking water, which is the most common exposure for humans, it’s going to live there for 6-8 years before it’s expelled from our body… and that bioaccumulation is what can cause health effects down the line.”
