Yes, according to this article:
Before I go on let me say this:
Boyett’s family water treatment (azh2o.com) has three simple solutions to remove the dangerous chemical pfas (forever chemical perflourooctanoic acid) from your water
Male mice injected with the malignant prostate cancer cells had a faster tumor growth rate when they ate high fat diet and had exposure to PFAS (forever chemical, pourfluorooctanoic acid). 1
On exposure to pfas (forever chemical, pourfluorooctanoic acid), tumor-forming prostate cells in a cell culture replicated nearly three times as much.
This mouse-and-cell culture study may influence future recommendations from healthcare professionals to beware of pfas – containing items (in the water), especially for males.
What’s a pfas?
Wide group of human-made chemicals specifically designed to resist grease, oil, water, and heat.
Used in combination as stain-repellant coating on food packaging and cooking equipment
Non stick coatings on pots and pans
Fast food wrappers and containers
Stain – and water-resistant carpeting and other fabrics
Firefighting foam and heat-resistant protective gear
Paints and sealants
Pfas (forever chemicals); they do not decompose. When people dispose of them – they contaminate the soil around and seep into our water supply. Pfas (pourflourooctanoic acid) contaminates the drinking water of at least 200 million American people.
How are you exposed to pfas:
Drinking contaminated water
Eating fish that were living in contaminated water
Eating food covered in paper and other packaging containing pfas
Coming into contact with contaminated soil or dust
What health problems may this cause:
Higher levels of cholesterol
Immune system issues
Interference with hormones and some major organs, such as the liver
After 40 days, the researchers observed an increase in tumor volume in mice exposed to pfas (highest growth rate was reported when the mice were exposed to a combination of pfas and high fat).
Pfas may turn on a protein-coding gene called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha. This causes cells to metabolize in such a way that increases the carcinogenic risk in benign prostate cells and also increases tumor development in malignant prostate cells.
The doctors in this article are suggesting to beware of pfas – containing items.
Dr. Movassaghi said it is not just a men’s health issue.
This is a general health issue. There are many different chemicals found in plastics known to be carcinogens. These can seep into our drinking water.
Is pfas (forever chemical, pourflourooctanoic acid) in the Phoenix metro waters and our drinking water in the East Valley?
Are pfas chemicals being regulated by our Federal Government or Arizona Government?
Our friends and family, great clients, and hopefully someday clients; our industry has a simple solution to pfas (forever chemical, pourflourooctanoic acid): granular activated filtration. Granular activated water filtration will remove this dangerous chemical from your water. It must be the proper quantity and it must be properly maintained. If your granular activated carbon is not replaced periodically – water contamination can occur.
My dear associates; my family has spent our 54 years preparing our company to help you. All of our records are digitally recorded with electronic files that tickle us when your equipment must be exchanged (in most cases we exchange your entire pfas filter every five years). Here is the method we follow to make sure this happens:
We send you and email
We send you a post card
We call you
We stop by your door and leave a note to call us
We are destined to get your pfas filter exchanged every five years. This service is performed at no charge.
In the future – in Arizona; carbon filters that are not exchanged regularly will risk contamination of your drinking water. Our delivery and service processes have been 54 years in the making and we will not disappoint you. We promise you delicious and safe drinking water.
No safe pfas exposure level – epa toxicity drafts point that way.
In this article:
Here is a summary of this article:
Toxicologists indicate there are no safe levels of pfas in our drinking water.
Exposure to certain pfas chemicals may reduce our body’s antibody response to vaccines, particularly in children.
The epa also indicates that pfas chemicals can cause cancer.
According to the research of this articles (exposure to pfas may lead to these health problems):
Increase cholesterol levels
Changes in liver enzymes
Decrease vaccine response in children
Increase risk of high blood pressure
Pre-clampsia in pregnant women
Decrease in infant birth weight
Increase risk of kidney or testicular cancer
The analysis reported in this article suggests the pfas are more harmful than previously acknowledged.
The time for action to protect our family’s and our water supplies is now. Boyett’s family has developed three products to help.
Sources (purpose of the prostate gland and some more info about this gland):
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body. The prostrate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s expelled with sperm as semen.
It is the most common form of cancer in men (besides skin cancer), but only one in 41 men die from prostate cancer.

Some of my hero’s ‘fellow fiddlers and family’
It is true that I am in love with all three of these ladies. They fiddle (the musical instrument; also known as the violin) with me and they make my heart happy. I am very proud to be their friend and family member.
We are getting ready to purchase two new utility boxes for the first time; we have ordered two new Isuzu trucks ‘because we want to plan ahead and continue to provide you good service’. In the past, all of our utility boxes ‘for the past 54 years’ have been used. New ones are twice the money, but we want to increase our speed and efficiency for you. We are also wanting to increase the satisfaction of the work of our great team of service and installation technicians. It is true I feel they are the best in the world and we want them to have the best tools and equipment to perform our work at your home and businesses.
I have been really impressed with Drake Equipment from the first call and the first meeting. This is the only location in Arizona where utility beds are manufactured. We also love the story of Drake and are excited about helping them build their company.
If you rent water treatment equipment from my family, I promise you we will utilize the best equipment, the best parts, the best ingredients, the best people, and the best approach to provide you the finest result – affordably.
Respectfully, Hayden Boyett

Note: If you don’t correctly maintain and exchange and properly sanitize your drinking water and your whole house water equipment on a regular basis; you will risk microbiological contamination of your drinking water:
Just do it.
