Former US EPA official Kyla Bennett talks about her exposure to cancer-linked PFAS chemicals, and Rob Bilott, the lawyer described as 'DuPont's worst nightmare' and who is played by Mark Ruffalo in the Hollywood film Dark Waters, tells Rachel and Leana how he is escalating his legal challenge against the manufacturers of PFAS. Manmade PFAS chemicals are widespread in the environment and they're likely to be in the blood of everyone on the planet, which is very bad news because some of them have been linked to cancers, and liver and thyroid disease among others.
