  • Perfluorooctanoate and Perfluorooctane Sulfonate Concentrations in Surface Water in Japan: Norimitsu Saito, et al. Institute for Environmental Sciences and Public Health of Iwate Prefecture—Perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are synthetic surfactants used in Japan. An epidemiological study of workers exposed to PFOA revealed a significant increase in prostate cancer mortality. A cross‐sectional study of PFOA‐exposed workers showed that PFOA perturbs sex hormone… CONTINUE READING
