The Pros And Cons Of Using Granular Activated Carbon For PFOS Treatment

Perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid, also known as PFOA and PFOS, are chemicals that have been slowly making their way into drinking water. Typically, the chemicals are found near industrial plants and military bases. The chemicals have been shown to have many harmful side effects to humans, including developmental effects on fetuses and breastfed infants, cancer, liver problems and thyroid issues.
