A new Harvard study suggests that millions of Americans may be exposed to unsafe drinking water.

Unsafe levels of chemicals called PFSA’s were found in water samples across the country.

The chemicals are used to make things like food packaging, and non-stick cooking pans.

They can cause health problems if ingested.

The highest levels were found near industrial sites, military bases and wastewater treatment plants.
