Families living near the base have suffered at the hands of chemical companies who recklessly manufactured, marketed, and distributed dangerous PFAS chemicals, commonly used by the U.S. military to fight fires, that now pollute the city's natural resources. These chemicals posed significant health and environmental risks, but the companies hid the information from the public and government regulators. Despite knowing that their products were associated with serious health effects, including an increased risk of cancer, they continued to profit from producing, selling, and disturbing the PFAS chemicals.
Research has linked PFAS exposure to:
Reproductive and developmental defects, including pregnancy-induced hypertension, preeclampsia, and decreased birthweight
Increased cholesterol levels
Damage to the immune system
Liver damage or changes in liver function
Higher risks of kidney and testicular cancer
Formed by cancer survivors affected by contamination, Fight for Zero is working to promote environmental justice and is hosting this meeting to provide legal support to victims and families who have suffered illness or loss due to polluted water. The firm's toxic tort attorneys are experienced in handling high-profile litigation cases and will give information about lawsuits filed by people exposed to firefighting foam and toxic water.
