Official ATSDR Press Release – Camp Lejeune Civilian Mortality Study
A critical civilian mortality study was released early this week from the ATSDR with significant findings of elevated cancer risks for civilians exposed to contamination at Camp Lejeune, NC. Already picked up by several news outlets, including NBC News, we encourage you to read it for yourself, study the report and share with everyone. The more we share the studies, findings and information provided, the more we will begin to understand the full scope of contamination impact on the health of individuals at Camp Lejeune.
In an online report released this morning, NBC News explores yesterday’s release of a new Civilian Mortality Study of Contaminated Water Exposure at Camp Lejeune. While much news has been focused on the military members and their families that lived aboard base during the period of contamination (1950s-1990s), this recent study provides a fresh and welcomed look into the issues faced by numbers of dedicated DOD civilian workers that worked aboard Camp Lejeune daily. Many were working or located in offices near or directly over contamination areas and hotspots.
