Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in livestock and game species: a review

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in livestock and game species: a review

Clare Death and Tarah Hagen from our Toxicology and Risk Assessment team have recently had a paper they authored and co-authored with representatives from Agriculture Victoria and University of Melbourne, published in Science of the Total Environment, an international journal for Scientific Research into the Environment and its Relationship with Humankind.

This paper entitled “Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in livestock and game species: a review” compiles information from terrestrial livestock and game species as a source of dietary PFAS exposure in humans, and discusses PFAS toxicokinetics and health effects in animals, while identifying future focus areas.
