Exposure to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances and Markers of Liver Injury
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are very persistent and ubiquitous in our environment. They are used in many industrial and consumer products and bioaccumulate in the food chain and in humans. During this webinar Dr. Vaia Lida Chatzi will present a new systematic review and meta-analysis looking at the weight and strength of the evidence of 85 animal and 24 human studies investigating exposure to PFAS and markers of liver injury. The study found that there is consistent evidence linking PFAS exposure to liver injury in both rodents and humans. The webinar will conclude with a discussion on paths forward for future research looking at next-generation PFAS, mixtures, and potential developmental effects, as well as policy implications.
This webinar will be moderated by Jerry Heindel, PhD, founder and director of Environmental Health Sciences' (EHS) Healthy Environment and Endocrine Disruptor Strategies (HEEDS). It will last for 45 minutes and will be recorded for our call and webinar archive.CONTINUE READING ON: www.healthandenvironment.org
