What Is AFFF?

Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is a firefighting suppressant that has been used to fight petroleum-based fires for over half a century. AFFF is primarily used by firefighters, the military, as well as airports.

It makes sense as to why firefighters would require a firefighting suppressant, but airports and the military also have massive stockpiles of gas for refueling planes, jets, large ships, etc. hence the need for AFFF in those locations.

Which Illnesses Have Been Linked to AFFF?

AFFF exposure through either the occupational use of firefighting suppressant or through groundwater contamination can result in serious health complications. The vast majority of those exposed to AFFF are either firefighters or military personnel.

Here are some of the illnesses that have been linked to AFFF:

  • Kidney Cancer 
  • Testicular Cancer 
  • Hypothyroidism
