3M's Forever, Everywhere Problem

The 3M Co. Cottage Grove Center stands in this aerial photograph taken over Cottage Grove, Minnesota, U.S., on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018. 3M's Cottage Grove factory had been churning out some varieties of Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) since the 1950s for the water- and stain-repellant Scotchgard. Recent studies have linked widely used PFAS to reduced immune response and cancer. As awareness spreads, 3M has been named in dozens of lawsuits, several this year alone. The company said the chemicals aren't a danger to public health. Photographer: Daniel Acker/Bloomberg via Getty Images
