According to a July 2020?study?published in the scholarly journal Environmental Science and Technology, PFAS—a family of potentially harmful chemicals used in a range of productsThe announcement this week o, including carpets, furniturenot population, clothingshe says., food packaging, and nonstick coatings—have now been?found in the Arctic Ocean.
