PFAS covers a wide range of fluorine substances that have been used for decades and is still used in a myriad of products. The substances, also known as the ‘Forever Chemicals’, are chemically extremely stable and continuously accumulate in humans and animals and elsewhere in the environment where they can pose a risk to animal and human health.
At a webinar the 18 September 2023 researchers, food and chemical authorities will discuss the current knowledge on PFAS in the Nordic Region. How does PFSA affect health? What are the risks? Where is PFAS found and to what extent? What are the authorities doing and how is it possible to remove or avoid a PFAS? What do we not know and need more knowledge about?
The webinar is jointly organized between Danish DTU National Food Institute (DTU Fødevareinstituttet), Finnish Food Authority (Ruokavirasto, Livsmedelsverket), Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (Vitenskabskomiteen for mat og miljø) and Swedish Food Agency (Livsmedelsverket).
