Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), a large class of synthetic chemicals known as ‘forever chemicals’, contain one of the strongest chemical bonds in organic chemistry. This accounts for the fact that they persist in the environment longer than any other man-made substance. As long as PFASs continue to be released in the environment, humans and other species will be exposed to ever greater concentrations of these substances.
