What toxic agents are contaminating Camp Grayling?
Right now, PFAS are the only known toxic contaminants polluting Camp Grayling. Their source is military firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant that is very effective for jet fuel and petroleum fires. Still, it is highly toxic, as it contains between 50% and 98% PFAS. Once these chemicals are released by the use of AFFF, they persist in the environment, hence their nickname “forever chemicals.” Similarly, once in the body, they take years to be completely eliminated.
Out of the PFAS group, which includes over 9,000 chemicals, PFOS and PFOA are the most studied and have the strongest association with cancer. Exposure occurs by ingestion or inhalation.
