Rainwater is no longer safe to drink anywhere on earth



Rainwater is no longer safe to drink

According to a study, “forever chemicals” linked to cancer have made rainwater unsafe to drink.

According to a group of environmental specialists, rainwater is no longer safe to drink anyplace on Earth under US contamination rules.

That’s because per- and polyfluoroalkyl compounds, which are dangerous chemicals, are now present in rainfall all over the world (PFAS). Researchers from the University of Stockholm, who have been researching PFAS for ten years, uncovered evidence that these chemicals had spread across the entire atmosphere, leaving no location unharmed, in an article that was published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology on August 2.

Numerous PFAS, all created by humans, are found in food packaging, clothing that repels water, furniture, carpets, nonstick coating on pots and pans, electronics, and some shampoos and cosmetics. They may be emitted into the air while being manufactured and used on a regular basis. Additionally, they dissolve into ocean water and become aerosolized as sea spray. They then disperse through the atmosphere and return to Earth in a rainfall.

Sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic has been discovered to contain PFAS. Since peer-reviewed research have connected them to some malignancies, poor fertility, impaired vaccine response, elevated cholesterol, and developmental delays in children, their prevalence throughout the world poses a risk to human health.

Similar to microplastics, it is challenging to pinpoint all the long-term health impacts of PFAS disclosure due to the wide variety of substances they encompass and their widespread occurrence in the environment. According to the latest study, everyone on Earth is in danger.
