Kopec discusses PFAS in fish with Kaiser Health News
Kaiser Health News interviewed Mitchell Center faculty fellow Dianne Kopec for an article about toxic per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, found in freshwater fish. Kopec said eating fish with high concentrations of PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals,” may be more harmful than mercury. “They’re both really nasty,” she said. The Messenger, The Citizen, the Louisiana Illuminator, New Orleans City Business, Lee News Central and Health News Florida shared the Kaiser Health news article.
