PCBs IN WATER TEST
While production and use of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been banned, they can still be present in our water supplies. PCBs were used in inks, hydraulic fluids, lubricants, plastics and pesticides. Health effects of drinking PCB-contaminated water include liver and kidney dysfunction, increased risk of cancer and developmental problems in children.
Are PCBs in My Water Harmful?
Unfortunately, these banned chemicals persist in the environment for a very long time. Runoff from landfills or industrial waste deposits can still contaminate water supplies, with effects like acne, liver problems, depression and fatigue, as well as an increased risk of cancer. If there is any chance your water is contaminated with PCBs, you need this test.
