This also includes pregnant women whose unborn children may have been exposed.Two wells that supplied drinking water at Camp Lejeune and the Marines Air Station were contaminated with Trichloroethylene (TCE), Perchloroethylene (PCE), Benzene, and Vinyl chloride.

Bladder cancer, Breast cancer, Esophageal cancer, Female infertility, Hepatic steatosis, Kidney cancer, Leukemia, Lung cancer, Miscarriage, Multiple myeloma, Myelodysplastic syndromes, Neurobehavioral effects, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Renal toxicity and Scleroderma.
