History of PFAS Contamination
These collections of primary source documents detail the decades-long history of the use of the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS. The timelines note the series of internal studies and reports, going back to the 1950s, about the known dangers of exposure to PFAS chemicals and how long this vital information was kept from the public.
EWG's robust body of research reveals a chemical crisis of epic proportions. Nearly all Americans are affected by exposure to PFAS chemicals in drinking water, food and consumer products.
