Between 1953 and 1987, the water supply for military personnel, civilians, and their families stationed at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base in North Carolina was heavily contaminated with dangerously toxic levels of:


 • Trichloroethylene (TCE) – a solvent utilized to decrease metal components, which has been shown to cause liver and kidney cancer.

• Perchloroethylene (PCE) – an industrial de-greaser, classified as a “likely carcinogen” by the EPA.

• Benzene – a known cancer-causing agent, Benzene is linked to high rates of leukemia and blood-based cancers.

• Toluene – a common ingredient in de-greasers, toluene exposure is linked to certain cancers as well as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

• Vinyl chloride – used to make PVC, this colorless gas is connected to an increased risk of hepatic angiosarcoma, as well as lymphoma, lung cancer, brain cancer, and leukemia


There’s evidence that the Navy knew – or should have known – that the water supply at Camp Lejeune was contaminated and unsuitable for human consumption. Still, they did nothing, putting millions of lives at risk.
