Mark Ruffalo says 99 percent of humans have 'forever chemicals' in their blood

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl compounds, or PFAS, have been detected in numerous communities across the country. Because PFAS do not break down in the environment, they have become known as “forever chemicals." They have been detected in the bloodstreams of millions of Americans, actor Mark Ruffalo said. “Ninety-nine percent of human beings have it in our blood. I have it. You have it. And we have it in our blood because we weren’t given the choice not to have it in our blood.”
