PFAS Exposure Sites Designated for Important Health Study

The ATSDR announced the centers of the multi-site health study that will look at the relatio0nship between PFAS exposure.

The sites are:

Montgomery and Bucks Counties, PA

Gloucester County, NJ

Hoosick Falls, NY, and Newburgh, NY

El Paso County, CO

Parchment/Cooper Township, MI, and North Kent County, MI

Hyannis, MA, and Ayer, MA

communities near the UC Irvine Medical Center

The study will look at multiple endpoints, but not cancer. Nonetheless, we hope it will begin to answer the pressing health questions which concern these communities.

High rates of testicular, pancreatic, bladder and kidney cancer still plague these communities, and we need to come to grips with this.
