PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are also known as "forever chemicals" because they're slow to break down in the environment and the body.
Long-term exposure to PFAS can lead to health problems, such as increased risk of some cancers, low birth weight, and problems with the thyroid and immune system.
The chemicals are used to make paper or cardboard containers resistant to grease or oil.
We don't have to keep using toxic PFAS and phthalates in our fast food restaurants, for there is non-bleached paper and cardboard, such as the 'If You Care' brand and 'Top Screen' formulas.
