Individuals, cities and states across the U.S. are filing PFAS chemical contamination lawsuits against 3M, Dupont and several other chemical manufacturers, alleging chemical pollution in soil, groundwater and drinking water. PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and many other chemicals. And PFAS are all-pervasive: they are found in fish, animals, and humans. Because PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) can accumulate in human bodies over time, they are also called the “forever chemical” and “the new asbestos”.
