On 9 May 2022 The HIll reported: The governors of two New England states have approved key pieces of legislation that transform their relationships with cancer-linked 'forever chemicals' -- by restricting their use on Maine farmland and facilitating treatment avenues for toxic exposure in Vermont. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of health and government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

In Maine, Gov. Janet Mills signed into law on Wednesday [20 April] a bill that will ban the application of biosolids -- also known as 'sludge' -- that contain so-called forever chemicals on farmland.

In Vermont, Gov. Phil Scott approved a bill the next day enabling plaintiffs to sue for medical monitoring following exposure to toxins, including these compounds.

... Most notorious for their presence in jet-fuel firefighting foam and industrial discharge, PFAS are also key ingredients in a variety of common products like biosolids used on farms, nonstick pans, and cosmetics.

... PFAS-laden biosolids have been a widespread source of contamination on agricultural land across Maine, leading several farmers to close shop after finding that their milk was tainted by the compounds, as The Hill reported. Such sludge is usually a product of paper mills.
