Common chemicals in tap water can cause cancer to spread

Numerous studies have shown that substances called per and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) are linked to multiple cancers, but now researchers have discovered that the substances may also be linked to the spread of the disease.
A study by Yale researchers found that colon cancer cells exposed to PFAS showed signs of metastasis – cancer that migrates to different parts of the body. This raised concerns because as the cancer spreads, it becomes more difficult to treat.
