And those prefectures are?

What is the name of the report?

The chances of high PFAS concentrations

in industrial urban areas is most likely though.

Very concerning.

I personally avoid vaccination because of risks like this which often are only admitted to after the fact.

My city here in USA closed its 3 wells due to high concentration of PFAS some months ago.

It is evaluating it's options as next steps as the layers of PFAS could grow wider over time where the wells were. Some studies say it could shrink over time.

All costly new options like building a treatment facility to remove the PFAS and new wells.

Right now buying water from another more expensive entity.
