There are more than a dozen federal bills dealing with PFAS “forever chemical” contamination, but none meaningfully address the real problems with these chemicals or protect public health. We need to demand more. Action Alert! As we’ve detailed in our pilot study which received national and international media attention, our world and our bodies are already extensively contaminated with PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), a group of more than 12,000 distinct organofluorine chemicals labeled “forever chemicals” because of their extreme persistence.

Not only are we finding new sources of PFAS contamination and exposure, we’re learning more about the negative health effects of these ubiquitous so-called “forever chemicals.” The government and its agencies need to wake up and ban these chemicals outright – before it’s too late.

The agency once again signaled its determination to pursue a ban on nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), a key supplement that can help turn back the clock on degenerative disease. Action Alert! While many may have given up on finding the mythical “Fountain of Youth,” emerging science is showing us strategies that can be used to help us stay healthy and vibrant as we age. An impressive array of animal research, coupled with a growing number of clinical studies, have shown NMN’s potential to combat age-related weight gain, improve energy, reduce age-related inflammation, counter premature ageing of the skin, fight cognitive decline, and protect the heart.

Below is ECVC’s initial analysis of the proposal. Read more.

Let’s support legislation to make supplements more affordable and more widely available to Americans. Action Alert! A recent study found that those taking multivitamins were 3 years “younger” in terms of their memory function than those taking a placebo. This builds on evidence from last year finding that multivitamins slowed memory and cognitive decline. Read more.
