Dr. Clifton Dassuncao, an environmental epidemiologist at ERG, recently contributed to a review article in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, a scientific journal published by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). The review synthesizes the current state of knowledge and key gaps in our understanding of poly and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) exposures in humans and wildlife. PFAS are used widely across industries and can be found in personal care products, textile treatments, food contact materials, and medical devices; however, they are often called “forever chemicals” because of their persistence in the environment. Following decades of widespread use, we are only beginning to understand the full extent of PFAS exposures and health effects, and this publication—a result of collaboration between Dr. Dassuncao and other leading PFAS experts—provides crucial scaffolding to the research process.
