A study released last month by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) found that at least 45% of the country’s tap water contains per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs). Some of the health issues linked to PFAs include cancer, liver damage, increased risk of thyroid disease, preeclampsia during pregnancy, and other serious health conditions.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) hosts an interactive U.S. map on its website, showing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination throughout the country. It’s simple to use; just input your address.
