Miscarrying a baby is one of the most emotionally devastating experiences a woman can go through. When that miscarriage is caused by contaminated water, it can be even more heartbreaking. For years, the water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with toxins like benzene and trichloroethylene. As a result, many women who were stationed there during their pregnancies lost their babies to miscarriage. In some cases, the damage was so severe that it caused lifelong health problems for the women themselves.
Contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina has been linked to an increased risk of miscarriage, according to a new study. The research, which was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, found that women who were exposed to the contaminated water were up to twice as likely to miscarry as those who were not exposed.
The contamination at Camp Lejeune occurred over a period of several decades, and the effects on pregnancy are only now beginning to be understood. Previous studies have linked exposure to the contaminated water to an increased risk of birth defects and other health problems, but this is the first study to examine the specific effect on miscarriage. The findings add to our growing understanding of the potential health effects of exposure to contaminated water, and underscore the importance of ensuring that our drinking water is safe.
