Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, better known as PFAS or “forever chemicals,” appear to cause cancer to metastasize, according to a new, peer-reviewed study.
Forever chemicals are near-ubiquitous in non-stick cookware and other everyday household items and also present in specialized substances, including the foam used by firefighters — who are at a 21 percent greater risk of developing colorectal cancer than the general population.

Researchers at the Yale School of Public Health have now confirmed exposure to forever chemicals causes colorectal cancer cells cultured in Petri dishes to migrate to new locations, indicating they could also cause cancer cells in the body to spread.
Even in households where non-stick pans and other items made with PFAS are carefully avoided, almost half of U.S. tap water now contains forever chemicals, and they are detectable in the bodies of some 97 percent of Americans.
The multinational 3M Company agreed to a multi-billion-dollar settlement with various states and municipalities last year for its part in contaminating the country’s drinking water with forever chemicals.
