What are Forever Chemicals? And Should You Be Concerned?

Sara Goddard in Green That Life –

The term “forever chemicals” is a nickname for a class of manufactured fluorinated chemical substances found in a whole host of consumer products, drinking water, and in industrial practices. Technically known as per- and polyfluorinated compounds, there are nearly 5,000 of these forever chemicals, all grouped into one category.

They’re called forever chemicals because they last, well, forever, or at least indefinitely in your body and the environment.
