So the Department of Natural Resources is again trying to adopt regulations and limits on PFAS. These are chemicals that do not break down in the environment, bioaccumulate in animals and cause bad health outcomes.
Maybe the DNR read the study that 100% of umbilical cord blood samples detected PFAS, meaning every baby in the 30,000 sample group is being exposed to PFAS while in utero. Or maybe they read the study that 100% of the sample mothers in Seattle were breast feeding their infants PFAS. It seems to me that limiting if not outright banning PFAS is the way to go if we do not want our infants exposed to these poisonous chemicals.

But wait, I'm sure Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce will come to the rescue of the chemical industry and keep these regulations from taking effect. For some, profits are more important than the health of children.
