FOAM LINKED TO CANCER
The US Naval Research Laboratory conducted research in the 1960s that eventually would end up being used to create the aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF). This low viscosity synthetic foam extinguishes hydrocarbon fuel fires rapidly, by forming an aqueous film on the surface of the fuel that prevents evaporation and re-ignition of the fuel itself. Due to his high effective performance, this foam was eventually used on all US Navy aircraft carriers, major airports, and civilian fire departments.
Concerns have been raised regarding AFFFS's toxicity and its potential negative effects on both the environment and human health even though proven very effective as a fire suppressant. AFFF contains perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), substances that are a part of a large family of man-made chemical compounds used in a range of consumer products such as nonstick products, polishes, waxes, paints, and cleaning products.
There have been several instances of water contamination near airports and military bases that have triggered drinking water shutdowns, because these compounds are extremely persistent in the environment. Studies have further linked the chemicals to kidney and bladder cancer, as well as thyroid disease.
