Humans are exposed to these compounds in drinking water, dust, and various products commonly used in industry.

For example, PFOA and PFOS are responsible for the non-stick and heat resistance of cooking pans, they are also used in food packaging products and in the treatment of waterproof and stain-resistant textiles, carpets and clothing. .

According to scientists, these substances can enter the body and travel to the liver, the organ responsible for producing cholesterol and controlling the fat consumed in the diet.
