ICYMI because you were too busy waiting for the Love is Blind live reunion, Canadian researchers have developed a way to filter forever chemicals out of water and potentially destroy them all together.
When you ask a PFA how long they think they’ll stick around:
Think again, forever chemicals. Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances (or PFAs) are used to produce nonstick cookware, flame retardant, moisture-repellent fabrics, cosmetics, and other consumer goods.
They got the nickname “forever chemicals” because they literally stick around forever, and it’s hard to completely remove them from water sources. Which is a big bummer because they’ve been linked to thyroid problems, infertility, and multiple types of cancer.
