PFAS chemicals are made up of a chain of linked carbon and fluorine atoms, which do not degrade in the environment.

A 2015 CDC report found endocrine-disrupting PFAS have been detected in the blood of 97% of Americans.

According to CNN, they're used in all sorts of consumer products, including fast food packaging.

Foods that contain a lot of grease -- such as burgers, fries, and cookies -- are prime candidates for wrappers made with PFAS.

CDC: COVID-19 Is Airborne--Or Is It?

Over the weekend, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the novel coronavirus COVID-19 can be airborne. Days later, Gizmodo reports the public health agency took it back.
