Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in the Arctic Environment: Sources, Transport, and Health Concerns for Fish, Wildlife, and People was recorded on April 24th, 2013 and hosted by ACAT’s Alaska Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE-AK). Listen to the call recording and watch the presentation slides (see below) for a discussion on perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) which are synthetic chemicals widely used to make materials stain resistant, including fabrics and metals. PFCs are persistent organic pollutants that remain in the environment for long periods of time and accumulate in the bodies of fish, wildlife, and people. Exposure to PFCs has been linked to adverse health effects, including reproductive and developmental effects, endocrine disruption and certain cancers. Join Dr. Craig Butt, post-doctoral research fellow in the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University for a discussion of the biological fate of PFCs in the arctic where he looked at PFCs in ringed seals and seabirds in the Canadian Arctic and Carol Kwiatkowski, PhD, Executive Director and Senior Research Associate at The Endocrine Disruption Exchange who will discuss the Critical Windows of Development online tool showing when low-dose exposure to PFCs during fetal development can result in altered health outcomes.
