A little more Bio on Detlef:
Paul Westerhoff
17:55
He is the Deputy Director of NC State’s Superfund Center for Environmental and Health Effects of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)Mission: The mission of this cross-disciplinary Center is to advance research, technology development, training and community engagement about exposure to a class of ubiquitous environmental compounds known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The long-term objectives are to assess PFAS 1) exposure in impacted areas, 2) toxicity and underlying mechanisms of thyroid and immune function, 3) bioaccumulation potential, and 4) remediation

EPA now has >10,0000 chemicals on their PFAS list

Recording of todays talk will be posted on our website at https://memcare.sph.harvard.edu/memcare-src-speaker-series

is # on PFAS list ">10,0000" supposed to be >10,000 or >100,000?
*Linda Birnbaum
33:19
10,000 - actually someone told me it's close to 12,000

If health values are so low (e.g., 1 ppt), doesn't a filter removing 98% of the PFAS still leave carcinogenic levels in the water > 1ppt, even RO systems? Can you address implications?
D'Ann Williams, JHU-CLF (she/her/hers)
01:08:57
If RO was used in public water systems
Roger Rayle
01:09:58
How would cost of adding treatment systems to community water supplies compare with providing all home with the best under-the-sink filters?
D'Ann Williams, JHU-CLF (she/her/hers)
01:10:00
Sorry, do you think your research supports the incorporation of RO in public water systems? Given the demand is that an option.
