Multiple harmful chemicals present in drinking water at Camp Lejeune during the last century have a strong association with leukemia, including benzene, a highly dangerous industrial solvent. Benzene was shown to cause chromosome changes in bone marrow cells in laboratory studies, changes that are also present in human leukemia cells. Exposure to benzene has been associated with leukemia for over a century, and it increases the chances of developing this cancer by up to 40%. It can result in many forms of leukemia, including the following:
Benzene exposure is likely to lead to bone marrow cell death and DNA damage at any stage of life. Exposure to benzene is known to damage the bone marrow, which results in decreases in circulating blood cells and, ultimately, aplastic anemia, which often precedes leukemia. Veterans, family members, and civilians who lived at Camp Lejeune while the drinking water was contaminated are now at high risk of developing leukemia, which is why they should keep a close eye on their health.
