Toxicologist who belittled PFAS risks resigns from EPA role

Read the full story from E&E News.

A toxicologist who touted her links to EPA while advocating for artificial turf fields and downplaying the impacts of “forever chemicals” says she has ceased her work with the agency, as one town on Martha’s Vineyard is considering banning the fields altogether.

The changes come after an E&E News article this week called into question Laura C. Green’s comments about per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known as PFAS, which are used in manufacturing artificial turf. Green has performed work as an EPA special government employee, and often cited her agency experience to bolster her claims about the chemicals (Greenwire, Dec. 8).
