The Harmful Truth About PFA's

Ashley Cameron

PFA’s (polyfluoroalkyl substances) have been inhibiting our world and our bodies for far too long. These harmful chemicals live in our household cleaning products and water supply, and are affecting millions of people with health issues. More than 200 million people in the United States are affected by these chemicals, so it is time to shed light on this matter and help spread the word.

Throughout my research on this topic, I hope to help elucidate which products are safe to use or consume, and to help people get rid of the daily things that work against people every day through their inclusion of PFA’s. The visuals that are provided in my book and in my final exhibit will specifically focus on the amount of places here in The United States that have contaminated community water stations. In my efforts to help bring awareness, I have also made a short product list of what is safe to buy and consume, which will be helpful to the people viewing my topic. PFA’s aren’t something that are being talked about every day, but the toxicity levels that are entering our bodies is outrageous, and the statistics of the effects are showing.
