Eating caught fish can put PFAS in your blood, research shows


Eating one locally caught freshwater fish in a year delivers as many potentially health-damaging nonstick PFAS compounds to the blood as drinking PFAS-contaminated water in a month, according to newly published scientific research.

Eating this fish “is like drinking the most PFAS-contaminated water you could find in any public water system in the country, if not worse,” says David Andrews, a senior scientist with the nonprofit Environmental Working Group in Washington, DC, who conducted the study with Duke University.
