Associations of exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances individually and in mixtures with persistent infections: Recent findings from NHANES 1999–2016

Results suggest PFAS exposure may increase susceptibility to and foster the clustering of persistent infections, particularly among adolescents. January 27, 2021 | Environmental Pollution

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in livestock and game species: A review

This review focuses on perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAAs) and compiles information from terrestrial livestock and game species as a source of dietary exposure in humans, and discusses toxicokinetics and health effects in animals, while identifying future focus areas.

Exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances during fetal life and hospitalization for infectious disease in childhood: A study among 1,503 children from the Odense Child Cohort

Study found an association between PFOS and the overall risk of infectious disease, and between PFOS and PFOA exposures and the risk of lower respiratory tract infections. January 25, 2021 | Environment International

Occurrence and toxicity of perfluoroalkyl acids along the estuarine and coastal regions under varied environmental factors

This study compiled the data on the levels of PFAAs in environmental samples, mainly in estuarine and coastal zones. A worldwide map was generated to show the distribution of PFAAs along with variety of environmental factors. January 9, 2021 | Science of the Total Environment
