    I just don’t understand all the emphasis on ca Lejeune when England AFB had the highest levels on the planet. I just think that 10,700,00ppt is a bigger deal than 70ppt.

    I believe the Study is somewhat flawed, in the both groups of Marines, much like fellow Soldiers, Airman and Sailors were and are still today exposed to every day working environment that includes the same TCE (Dry Cleaning Solvent) in the Degreaser used to clean the grease off weapons and other machine parts.

      What other activities, conditions were checked?
      Were chemicals such as MSG, petrol-diesel exposure compared?
      Was air composition from both bases tested and compared?
      Were procedures and rules in both camps identical?
      Does Lejeune drink twice as much beer as Pendleton?
      Whilst it MAY be the TCE was the agent, and whilst it MAY be that TCE was present only in the water, as a scientific study, unless the article just skipped over the controls, it is rubbish.
