(Worthy News) – There’s rainwater everywhere, but none of it is safe to drink because of man-made “forever chemicals” worldwide, according to a new study from the University of Stockholm.
The study, published Aug. 2, included data from the remote Tibetan plateau and Antarctica, normally known for their pristine water due to all the snow and ice. “Forever chemicals” have still contaminated both locations, at levels 14 times higher than U.S. drinking water guidelines, according to Agence France-Presse.
The chemicals, specifically classified as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), have been restricted heavily in recent years as scientists have learned more about their toxicity. The guidelines for safe PFA levels in water are as much as 37.5 million times lower than previous levels. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
