What are PFAS?

Per- and Poly-Fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are sometimes known as “FOREVER CHEMICALS” due to the fact that they are resistant to heat, water and oil. They don’t break down easily in the environment and are known to travel extremely long distances in water through ground and waterways.

Invented in the 1950’s by Du Pont and subsequently manufactured by 3M PFAS are found in Teflon non stick pans, Scotch Guard and AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) commonly used by Defence Forces and Fire Fighters globally until around the year 2000. When 3M exited the PFAS business in the year 2000 studies concluded that 95% of the worlds was contaminated with PFAS.


Why should we worry about PFAS?

PFAS are hitting the headlines not only here in Australia but globally, with an increasing number of studies linking PFAS exposure to serious adverse health affects, such as:

  • Various forms of cancer, including testicular and kidney cancer
  • Pregnancy-induced hypertension/pre-eclampsia
  • Liver damage
  • Increases in cholesterol levels
  • Increased risk of thyroid disease
  • Decreased antibody response to vaccines
  • Increased risk of asthma diagnosis
  • Increased risk of decreased fertility
  • Small decreases in birth weight.
