Since 2002, the manufacturing practices for PFCs in the United States have changed considerably. OBJECTIVES We aimed to assess exposure to perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), and eight other PFCs in a representative… CONTINUE READING
