PFAS is everywhere, so minimizing your exposure needs careful planning. In general, try to avoid the following:
PFAS chemicals are used widely across modern industry. But which products should you keep a close eye on to avoid getting further PFAS into your system?
Only a tiny amount of PFAS will be absorbed when your skin is in contact with PFAS-contaminated water. In general, for most PFAS types, when showering, bathing, or washing your dishes in water containing PFAS, the level of PFAS in your body should not increase. It is an entirely different story if you are drinking PFAS-contaminated water instead.
PFAS chemicals are believed to be present in 98-99 percent of all human bodies and getting rid of these chemicals is impossible once you have them inside you. You can, however, take precautions by using a water filter that removes PFAS from your drinking water. This is an effective way to reduce your PFAS exposure in everyday life. In early 2023 Aquaporin will present a solution to secure you and your family from PFAS in your drinking water. The future is now. The future will be Pure.
PFAS chemicals are not only dangerous for adults and animals but can also be passed by mothers to children via breast feeding. You can reduce PFAS exposure to your children by being aware of where PFAS are found in both products and in the environment. You shall as such take matters into your own hands and secure your children from being exposed to PFAS from the very early stages of life.
Contact your local government or environmental protection agency to get the latest updates on PFAS. If you have been exposed to PFAS or have any contamination concerns, you should contact your doctor.
Aquaporin has developed a water purifier solution to remove PFAS from your water. In early 2023 we will present A2O Pure, an under-the-sink PFAS filter system that is using our proprietary unique Aquaporin Inside® membrane biotechnology that can remove PFAS.
