Today, the Biden-Harris Administration announced it is proposing the first-ever national drinking water standard for six per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the latest action under President Biden’s plan to combat PFAS pollution and Administrator Regan’s PFAS Strategic Roadmap.
CEH and PEER announced results of a new study by University of Notre Dame researchers showing fluorinated high-density polyethylene plastic containers — used for numerous products such as household cleaners, pesticides, personal care products and food — tested positive for PFAS, including the highly toxic PFOA, which major manufacturers stopped producing in 2015.
After decades of exposure to contaminated water by the company Chemours and years of fighting for justice, our North Carolina coalition finally had their day in court.
The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) found high levels of the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in socks, sports bras, and athletic shirts.
BPA is a well-studied hormone-disrupting chemical, known to cause developmental and reproductive harm, and can be absorbed through our skin.
