Firefighter Foam Linked to Cancer

Get Help Today Discuss Your Options With Our Attorneys

Firefighter foam or aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) has been used since the 1960s. Sadly, in recent years, it was discovered that the manufacturers of AFFF used dangerous toxic chemicals, including perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Environmental Protection Agency, and the American Cancer Society have concurred that PFAS may be linked to cancer in firefighters. Those at the most risk include firefighters assigned to airports, as well as U.S. military fireman. Cancers and other diseases associated with PFAS include:

  • Kidney cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon or rectal cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Testicular cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Ulcerative colitis
