PFAS CRISIS EXPANDS AS MILLIONS OF AMERICANS IN 43 STATES ARE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Tens of millions of Americans in 43 states may have been exposed to toxic fluorinated compounds known as PFAS in their drinking water.

In a report from May, the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) showed how PFAS had exposed upwards of 19 million Americans through contaminated groundwater. EWG found 610 contaminated locations ranging from public water systems, military bases, military and civilian airports, industrial plants, dumps, and firefighter training sites.

Now the environmental advocacy group has identified 58 more military sites where high levels of PFAS used in firefighting foam have been detected in groundwater or drinking water, from Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson, Alaska to Fort Eustis, Virginia, reported the Military Times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely, completely wrong, and those agencies which allowed this to happen, particularly to our military families, need to get this corrected immediately.
