PFAS: Toxic Chemicals To Understand & Avoid November 28, 2022

PFAS chemicals seem to be everywhere these days: at the top of Mount Everest, in umbilical cord blood, in breast milk, and in the news. In 2022, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced new health advisories for PFAS in drinking water. This month, PSR’s My Green Doctor explains why PFAS are important and how your patients can avoid them. Click this link or scan the QR code.
