While the vast majority of military bases nationwide are contaminated with PFAS to a certain extent, on some of these installations, tremendous concentrations of "forever chemicals" are lurking.
The main culprit behind contamination with PFAS is military firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant meant to extinguish hydrocarbon fires.
Veterans and family members who trained or lived at these military bases have the highest risk of developing terrible diseases as a consequence of toxic exposure. For this reason, they should keep a close eye on their health and seek medical attention if they experience unusual symptoms.
To understand the degree of toxic contamination at the following military facilities, it is worth noting that the safe exposure limit for PFOA and PFOS, the most harmful chemicals from this group, is only 70 ppt.
It is important to know that, on the military bases above, there are other chemicals from the PFAS group polluting the environment, which only worsens the extent of toxic contamination. By training and living at these facilities, service members are inevitably exposed to "forever chemicals," which greatly increases their risk of coming to struggle with serious diseases later in life.
