The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just released a new report confirming the link between contaminated tap water at Camp Lejeune to an increased risk of serious birth defects and childhood cancers. The study examined a number of children (almost 13,000 sample size) between 1999 and 2002.
This new study, along with an upcoming mortality study to be released soon, marks a shift in the fight to hold the base and the government accountable for over four decades of water supply contamination. For links to the news story and the report, visit:
