New Study Finds Forever Chemicals In Seltzer

A Consumer Reports investigation has found that toxic “forever chemicals” are in several popular bottled water and carbonated water brands.

According to the EPA Per- and polyfluoroakyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemical compounds that don’t easily break down in the environment, or the human body.

They’re found in many consumer products, including food packaging, textiles, and nonstick pans.

Gizmodo reports they are also found in drinking water itself.
