Per-and-poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) - I have been exposed to PFASs. Can I donate?

Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, also known as PFASs, are a group of manufactured chemicals that have been used since the 1950s in a range of common household products and specialty applications, including in the manufacture of non-stick cookware; fabric, furniture and carpet stain protection applications; food packaging; some industrial processes; and in some types of fire-fighting foam.
