Kyla Bennett, an ecologist and director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, explained that PFAS accumulates in the body, and the more PFAS that one is exposed to, the more prone they are to experience health issues.
“The biggest thing people need to know is that these compounds are dangerous even at minute levels,” Bennett said. “PFAS are for the most part odorless, tasteless and colorless. When you turn on the tap and it comes out brown, you’d freak out. With PFAS, you can’t tell it’s there.”
