PFAS endangers pregnancies, newborns

There’s no force in nature more powerful than a mothers love for her child. Yet there is new evidence that PFAS threatens that sacred relationship We have known for a long time that PFAS builds up in the body and blood. So even if a mother is not currently exposed to PFAS, the buildup from […]

We met with staff from the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, the House PFAS Task a Force and the House Government oversight committee We briefed them on three […]
