PFAS stands for Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, which are a group of man-made substances that include thousands of individual compounds. Unfortunately, PFAS do not break down in the environment as they travel through soils, contaminate drinking water sources, and build up in fish and wildlife. While exposure in people typically occurs by consuming water or food contaminated with PFAS chemicals, it can also occur when using products that contain them.
