The Effects of Soil Organic Carbon Content on Plant Uptake of Soil PFAAs and its Potential Regulatory Implications

Study concludes that the US EPA’s current reference dose could be met by consuming a single radish groin in soils with a PFOA concentration of 9.7 ng/g or a PFOS concentration of 90.5 ng/g. May 30, 2020 | Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry

Uptake of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) by common home-grown vegetable plants and potential risks to human health

Researchers at the University of Newcastle’s Global Center for Environmental Remediation study the uptake and accumulation of PFOS in home-grown vegetables. The results showed considerable accumulation of PFOS in different parts of vegetables. May 4, 2020 | Environmental Technology & Innovation, Volume 19

Reducing exposure to high levels of perfluorinated compounds in drinking water improves reproductive outcomes: evidence from intervention in Minnesota
