How is PFAS Used?

Companies like DuPoint and 3M are majorly benefitted from the use of PFAS in their operations. This component is used for creating water and stain repellents. This revenue can count as $1 billion.

PFAS is a well-known ingredient used for manufacturing the following products:

  • Flame retardants
  • Foam extinguisher
  • Ink
  • Pesticides
  • Hydraulic fluids for automobile and aero industries
  • Medical devices
  • Metal plating
  • Non-stick cookware coating
  • Food packaging
Impact on Environment

According to the reports of the Environmental Working Group released in June 2017, PFAS has contaminated the water supply of around 27 states, affecting 15 million Americans. This compound has been found in varying degrees in blood of human beings and domestic animals. PFAS is non-biodegradable which means that this can stay in the environment for million of years.

Health Consequences Due to PFAS Exposure and Contamination

As it has already been said, PFAS is found in a majority of areas in the USA, it is obvious that this compound is already affecting everyone in various ways.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"I had hired Mr Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before i had met her for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.
★★★★★
I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous

After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous
