Lawmakers seek registry for military water contamination cancers, illnesses

Lawmakers seek registry for military water contamination cancers, illnesses | 18 May 2018 | Lawmakers have introduced a bill to create a registry of military families experiencing cancers and other illnesses they think may be tied to base water contamination. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., introduced the "PFAS [per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances] Registry Act" in April. In April, Military Times reported that the Pentagon had released a study on all the bases that have water sources that tested positive for higher than recommended levels of PFOS and PFOA -- compounds tied to cancers and birth defects... The registry would be similar to one established to record service member exposure to burn pits. In February the Department of Labor found that exposure to the open-air burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan had caused lung disease. [Thanks, Halliburton!]
