Kopec discusses PFAS in fish with Kaiser Health News and Undark

Kaiser Health News and Undark interviewed University of Maine faculty fellow Dianne Kopec for articles 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 Scientific American, Popular Science, The Messenger, The Citizen, the Louisiana Illuminator, New Orleans City Business, Lee News Central, Health News Florida and other outlets shared the Kaiser Health news article.
