On 14 April 2024 The Guardian reported: Everything you need to know about 'forever chemicals' detected in air, water, soils, sediments, and rain. ...PFAS stands for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, it's an umbrella term for a family of thousands of chemicals -- about 12,000 at the last count -- that are prized for their indestructible and non-stick properties. ...It was DuPont that introduced PFAS to the world in the 1940s as Teflon and it was DuPont that revealed how harmful they could be. Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health and science systems. Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.

...A US study that ran between 2005 and 2013, involving the collection of blood samples from about 69,000 people living near the DuPont plant, concluded that there was a 'probable link' between exposure to PFOA and six diseases: high cholesterol, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and pregnancy-induced hypertension.

...There are lots of potential sources of PFAS pollution. Aside from chemicals manufacturing plants, any site that has regularly used PFOS-laden aqueous film-forming firefighting foams, such as airfields, military bases, and firefighting training grounds, could in theory contaminate soils, air, and water in the vicinity.
