What Is the ATSDR and How Does It Help Identify Chemical Hazards at Camp Lejeune?
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry or the ATSDR notes that children, pregnant women and all workers at the Military Base at Camp Lejeune may have been exposed to hazardous chemicals during their time living and working on that base. The exposure to hazardous chemicals was in the form of soil and groundwater contamination. There was also indoor air contamination of chemicals that were airborne in the offices and other building structures within that facility.
Is the ATSDR Offering Protection for the Children Who Lived with Parents Stationed at Camp Lejeune?
Yes, people are now affected and sick with many different types of diseases, from living and working at Camp Lejeune. Children who were with parents stationed at Camp Lejeune are able to bring a lawsuit now as adults. Many people did develop serious neurological disorders, based on this dangerous and hazardous exposure to TCE and PCE. TCE and PCE are chemicals that are used usually in the manufacturing process.
Many people who were injured by the hazardous chemicals on the Camp Lejeune military base, did not know it was happening at the time of the environmental exposures. This is because the chemicals related to TCE are nonflammable, colorless and liquid used to remove grease from metal parts, are in adhesives and paint removers. The PCE chemicals are also nonflammable and are used in the dry-cleaning process to remove grease as well. PCE can sometimes be called perchloroethylene or PERC, and it is a harmful chemical to humans as well.
