Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) distribution are reported in source water of 25 cities in 10 countries (i.e., Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Sweden, Turkey and Canada). More than 1300 samples were collected in different water environments (e.g., river, lake, wetland, reservoir, wastewater treatment plant, residence, and sea) from November 2004 to December 2009.
