Forever chemical threatens female decreased fertility

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as the forever chemicals, are a large chemical family of over 4,700 highly persistent chemicals that don’t occur in nature. New research published in the journal Science of The Total Environment “Exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances and women’s fertility outcomes in a Singaporean population-based preconception cohort” show that higher PFAS exposures are associated with decreased fertility in women.
