1. Look for productS clearly labeled as PFAS-free or zero-PFAS
Looking for products labelled PFOA-free or PFOS-free is not enough. PFOA and PFOS are only two of nearly 5,000 fluorinated compounds.
2. CHECK YOUR PERSONAL-CARE PRODUCTS
Avoid personal-care products containing ingredients that include the words “fluoro” or “perfluoro.” PFAS can be found in dental floss and a variety of cosmetics, including nail polish, facial moisturizers, and eye make-up. Look for products labeled zero-PFAS or PFAS-free.
3. AVOID NON-STICK COOKWARE
If you choose to continue using non-stick cookware, be very careful not to let it heat to about 450ºF. Do not leave non-stick cookware unattended on the stove, or use non-stick cookware in hot ovens or grills. Discard products if non-stick coatings show signs of deterioration or peeling.

Chances are, you encounter so many warning labels on a daily basis that you no longer bother reading them. Reading and understanding the directions on your household products is so important to prevent harm from happening to you or your family.
