Contaminated Water Linked to Stillbirths in Mass

by Civilian Exposure

Washington-Post-LogoNot only do we face water and soil contamination aboard military installations like Camp Lejeune, we also find that the same chemicals involved at Camp Lejeune can have just as deadly of an impact in other locations around the country.  Such is the case with this Washington Post report from Massachusetts regarding PCE.  The links between water and soil toxins to a variety of severe health problems, including stillbirths, are becoming all too apparent.  That is, they are becoming all too apparent to everyone but those who should show accountability.  As the mountain of stories and studies continues to pile up, the tide is slowly turning.

From the story:

PCE contamination has also been found on military bases across the country. Studies of Camp Lejeune Marine Base in North Carolina, now a Superfund site, found a higher risk of terminal illness among workers on the base. The military was criticized for being slow to address the risk of PCE and other contaminants and for failing to notify people who might have been affected. Water systems in California and Pennsylvania and have also been found to be contaminated with PCE.
