ATSDR’s Position on the Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune

From CDC/ATSDR:

It is ATSDR’s position that past exposures from the 1950s through February 1985 to trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and other contaminants in the drinking water at the Camp Lejeune likely increased the risk of cancers (kidney, multiple myeloma, leukemias, and others), adverse birth outcomes, and other adverse health effects of residents (including infants and children), civilian workers, Marines and Naval personnel at Camp Lejeune.

    1. Let’s hope that not only a ruling but also compensation comes quickly! I lost a kidney to cancer and also had(?) Stage 2 bladder cancer. My claim was put in shortly after my surgery 4 yes ago. In all fairness, the VA docs saved my life and I have no complaints at all with my treatment and care.
