Did you know that 98% of the U.S. population has PFAS chemicals in their blood at levels that could possibly cause cancer or other serious medical issues?   PFAS are everywhere, from Scotchgard, rainwater, to the Antarctic.    PFAS are also commonly referred to as “forever chemicals” because they were made to last forever.   Thousands of companies have manufactured or distributed these products starting back from the 1940s till today and it is projected that these companies might face $1 trillion of compensation to those injured or whose property was damaged by these chemicals.  Over $10 billion has already been committed by some of the bigger manufacturers to several water agencies to clean up our drinking water.
