Exposure to contaminated water is wreaking havoc on the health of those who serve our Country. If this negligence is acceptable treatment for our troops, what do you suppose is acceptable for the rest of us?
Here are just a few to get your blood boiling:
#1 – According to reports, 376,377 defense contractor employees assigned in 2003 to rebuild a water pumping facility in Iraq and National Guardsmen from several states responsible for their security were exposed to hexavalent chromium that was left at the site. The chemical was originally used to remove and prevent corrosion in the water pipes. While on site, many of the exposed individuals suffered skin sores, nose bleeds, nausea, stomach pain, and respiratory problems, including coughing up blood. Many still have residual respiratory and other ailments to this day and there is a slow but sure reporting of lung and sinus cancer that can (and should) be directly linked to their chromium exposure.
# 2 – A new report by the Federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease shows that the decades-long case of drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune is one of the worst on record. Tap water supplied to base housing contains toxic chemicals and known carcinogens including benzene, vinyl chloride and trichloroethylene at levels that significantly exceed “legal limits”. Veterans and there families have been poisoned at Camp Lejeune (and God knows where else) since 1948. The civilian penalty for this negligence would be multiple life prison sentences but since this is a government “oversight” we’ll excuse it as a big mistake. Tell that to the thousands of cancer patients coming out of Camp Lejeune since 1948. Veterans, fathers, sons, wives, mothers, children, grandchildren. What a way to treat those willing to serve our country!
Where is Erin Brockovich when we need her? Perhaps even Erin isn’t bold enough to take on the U.S. government.
