Commentary: EPA action on ‘forever chemicals’ good for humans, fish, wildlife

PFOA and PFOS, part of the group of PFAS chemicals commonly known as “forever chemicals,” have been linked to severe health risks, including developmental impacts, certain cancers, and adverse effects on vital organs such as the heart and liver. (Stock photo)

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s designation of PFOA and PFOS as hazardous substances underscores the agency’s commitment to addressing serious threats posed by per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals to public health and the environment. The designation comes under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund.
