PFAS, the Military, and Public Health
We hear from a trio of experts on PFAS, the "forever" chemicals that are being detected in drinking water supplies across the country, and their use on military bases as fire suppressants. Joining Annie and Steve are Patricia Hynes, a retired professor of Environmental Health at Boston University and currently director of the Traprock Center for Peace and Justice, Liz Rozenbaum, founder and organizer of the Fountain Valley Clean Water Coalition, and Alliance co-chair and WILPF activist Nancy Price.
