Regulators STILL allowing toxic BIOSLUDGE to be dumped all over food crops, polluting them with PFAS “forever chemicals”

June 12, 2023 -

Maine and Michigan are the only two states where PFAS testing is required, while the other 48 refuse to test for PFAS. The result is PFAS contamination all throughout the food supply, and even inside people's bodies.

The state of Virginia, for instance, actually increased the amount of sludge permitted to be dumped on farmland with no PFAS testing. Similarly, Alabama continues to reject pleas by residents and environmental groups to test ...

CHEMICAL COVER-UP: EPA’s plan to regulate wastewater pollution DOES NOT deal with “forever chemicals”

February 14, 2023 -

However, the plan doesn't reflect the urgent need to deal with these pollutants more quickly.

The EPA's plan will likely take years to complete and it will delay much-needed restrictions on PFAS discharges into waterways. The plan also falls short of the agency's vow in its 2021 PFAS Strategic Roadmap to "get upstream" of the forever chemicals problem.

According to the EPA, it will release a draft regulation for manufacturers of PFAS ...

EPA to crack down on FOREVER CHEMICALS in drinking water via proposed national standards

March 16, 2023 -
