Plasma Donation Decreases PFAS

1 post in this topic

Recently I've become aware of how everyone is loaded with PFAS, these resilient particles used in Teflon and other industrial systems.

Their health effects have been very unknown except for people with high levels of exposure for long periods of time. This means that the majority of people will not know the consequences of these particles.

So I did some research if there is anyway to detox or remove PFAS from the body and I found some interesting results.

There was a study in Australia covering 285 firefighters (who are exposed to PFAS because of their practical uses)

They were split into 3 groups. A blood donation, plasma donation, and observation group.

In the end after 1 year the plasma group saw major decrease, blood group saw minor, and observation saw none.

There are a lot of details left out so I'll link the study below.

But it seems that PFAS latch on to fat and protein so that is why the plasma is more beneficial, also you can donate plasma twice a week where you can only donate blood every 12 weeks.

But this has me considering donating plasma weekly just to keep my levels down and prevent any unknown dangers.

What do you think? @Leo Gura
