Health FAQs

I am worried about my health and that of my family members. What can I do?

FRNSW acknowledges that people are worried. We know that most people living in developed nations are likely to have some levels of PFAS in their body because these compounds have been used in domestic products like non-stick cookware, fire retardant fabrics and furniture for example. What we don’t know is whether there is any long term adverse health or environmental impacts We are following the guidance of the Commonwealth Department of Health, Health Based Guidelines for PFAS, released in April 2017, which states that currently there is no consistent evidence that exposure to these PFAS causes adverse human health effects.
