A new tool to estimate your body burden of PFAS based upon drinking water exposures: New in EHP

My latest article for Environmental Health Perspectives covers a newly published paper in the journal with the enchanting title of "Bayesian Estimation of Human Population Toxicokinetics of PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS, and PFNA from Studies of Contaminated Drinking Water."

The headline of my article, meanwhile, is "From Drinking Water to Individual Body Burden: Modeling Toxicokinetics of Four PFAS." B

But it needn't sound so complicated. To put it more simply, my story describes the creation of a new model and a new user-friendly web tool powered by it that allows members of the public to generate an estimate of PFAS levels in their blood based upon exposures through tap water. The tool, released in November 2022, is a product of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Read more here.
