Senate to discuss health risks of PFAS chemical in Michigan water

PFAS will be the center of discussion on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

A Senate subcommittee will listen to testimony about health risks of the man-made chemicals that are often used in manufacturing.

Experts believe they can increase the risk of certain cancers.

PFAS have already been found in more than two Michigan communities and Senator Gary Peters is concerned that more people are being exposed.
