North Kent County Exposure Assessment: Results

North Kent County Exposure Assessment Participant Demographics and Serum PFAS Summary

This is a high-level overview of results from the first report of the North Kent County Exposure Assessment (NKCEA). In the report, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) compared the PFAS blood levels of NKCEA study participants with the PFAS blood levels of people whose data is included in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). NHANES is a program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It provides estimated levels of some environmental chemicals in the general U.S. population.

NKCEA participant PFAS serum levels varied by type of PFAS, and ranged from low levels (similar to levels found in many people of the U.S.) to high levels that exceeded what is commonly found in most people in the U.S.
