Veterans, active component service members, and their families (spouses and children) who lived at military bases across the country are now facing a high rate of blood cancers, such as multiple myeloma, due to continuous or repeated contact with:
Military installations used PFAS-containing foams in firefighting training and fire suppression systems throughout their bases. The foam was extremely prevalent in past years but is starting to become phased out because of its concentration of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) due to their carcinogenic classification and potential.
Unfortunately, the PFAS substances stemming from the use of AFFF, PCE, and TCE, are not the only toxic substances polluting military bases. There are other hazardous substances that were found by the Environmental Protection Agency, including the following:
