PFASology is a science podcast covering the different disciplines of PFAS research. It is created by the 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) within PERFORCE3. Over the course of the series, the ESRs will discuss the challenges and solutions associated with the global occurrence of PFAS.
In 2021, citizens of Flanders, Belgium, became aware of the detection of high levels of PFAS in their soil, water, and food. The Flemish government is trying to determine the health effects caused by this pollution. A PFAS production site is now being investigated. In this episode, we speak to Lars Brunken on the role of scientists in cases like this to determine potential dangers to human health from exposure to PFAS.
