Bluewater, a leading pioneer in advanced water purification and beverage solutions, has called for the urgent classification of PFAS chemicals as environmental risk factors. This call comes in the wake of a new study revealing a clear link between PFAS exposure and cancer in women.

The study, conducted by researchers from UC San Francisco (UCSF), the University of Southern California (USC), and the University of Michigan, suggests that exposure to certain endocrine-disrupting chemicals, including PFAS, may play a role in cancers affecting the breast, ovary, skin, and uterus. The research indicates that individuals who developed these cancers had significantly higher levels of these chemicals in their bodies.

Bengt Rittri, the founder and CEO of Bluewater, emphasized the growing concern among consumers about the long-term health effects of exposure to potentially harmful chemicals found in drinking water sources worldwide. These chemicals can range from causing endocrine disruption to increasing the risk of chronic diseases. Rittri described PFAS chemicals as a global environmental risk factor and affirmed Bluewater’s wholehearted commitment to innovating the world’s best water purification solutions that surpass conventional technology.

PFAS, often referred to as “forever chemicals” due to their resistance to breaking down, have been found to contaminate water, food, and even humans through various products such as cooking utensils, waterproof clothing, stain-resistant fabrics and carpets, and food packaging. These chemicals can persist in the environment for decades, and it is estimated that nearly everyone on the planet has some level of PFAS in their bloodstream.

Bluewater is at the forefront of providing groundbreaking water purifiers for homes, workplaces, and recreational settings, effectively removing toxic chemicals and other health-threatening substances to safeguard communities and empower individuals by granting access to clean and healthy tap water. Independent research has demonstrated that Bluewater water purifiers can eliminate up to 99.99% of health-threatening PFAS chemicals like PFOA, PFOS, PFBA, and PFBS.

Furthermore, Bluewater is dedicated to combating the proliferation of single-use plastic bottles, which pose threats to oceans, rivers, and human health.

Dr. Ahmed Fawzy, Chief Scientist at Bluewater and an industry expert, highlighted the significance of Bluewater’s SuperiorOsmosis™ technology in addressing the challenge of chemicals in drinking water. He explained that through processes like reverse osmosis filtration, Bluewater effectively removes virtually all known contaminants, including chemical pollutants like PFAS. This ensures consumers have greater confidence in the safety and quality of the water they consume.

Bluewater’s commitment to empowering women in the quest for safe drinking water is underscored by the recognition that women and children are often the most vulnerable to the adverse effects of water contaminants. By providing accessible and reliable purification solutions, Bluewater aims to alleviate the burden of obtaining safe water and create opportunities for women to thrive and succeed in their communities.

In addition to its cutting-edge technology, Bluewater distinguishes itself through its unwavering commitment to sustainability. The company’s water purifiers are designed to be eco-friendly, promoting minimal waste and energy consumption. This reflects Bluewater’s dedication not only to enhancing water quality but also to reducing its environmental footprint.

As part of its mission to raise awareness about the significance of clean drinking water, Bluewater plans to participate in trade conferences and expert panels in the upcoming months.
