Massachusetts legislators: Take action now to turn off the PFAS tap!

Ban the Flow of Toxic PFAS

Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are chemicals that are toxic at very low levels, causing testicular and kidney cancer, high cholesterol, colitis, and immunosuppression, including reduced response to vaccines.

The more we look, the more we find PFAS—in products,  air, drinking water, sludge, surface water, food, plants and in…. US! Ninety eight percent of Americans tested have PFAS in their blood.

PFAS are among the most persistent chemicals ever created. They never fully break down, and they bio-accumulate.  That means the more we use PFAS, the more we contaminate our bodies and the water and air around us, increasing our risk for health problems none of us want. 

States across the country have already acted to ban PFAS in various consumer products. Massachusetts needs to do the same! Products can be made safely without toxic PFAS.

Take Action! Email your legislator and tell them to get toxic PFAS out of consumer products.
