OSLO - Research from Norwegian NGO Future in Our Hands claims that exposure to high levels of PFAS chemicals is having a devastating impact on the health of factory workers in China who produce textiles for western markets.

PFAS, which are often used to make outerwear water resistant, build up in the human body over time and have been linked to various cancers, reduced birth weights and damaged immune systems.

The Future in Our Hands report says that communities working in and living near manufacturing sites across Asia face serious health risks as a result of exposure to PFAS.
