Professor Miraim Diamond appeared on CBC's Marketplace to discuss the presence of Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in make-up products. PFSA's also known as forever chemicals, are a group of more than 12,000 chemicals used in a variety of products — from makeup to raincoats to non-stick pans to fast-food packaging. "Ninety-nine per cent of Canadians have some level of PFAS in us. That's an astonishing level," said Diamond.
