Study links contaminated water to adverse birth outcomes By Adelina Colbert Jacksonville Daily News (NC) November 21, 2014Pregnant women exposed to contaminated drinking water aboard Camp Lejeune might have experienced adverse birth outcomes, according to documents released this week.
A study released by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry on Friday revealed that women who were pregnant and exposed to the volatile organic compounds or VOCs, perchloroethylene or PCE, trichloroethylene or TCE, and benzene found in the drinking water on Camp Lejeune between 1968 and 1965 had a higher risk of having adverse birth outcomes.
The aim of the study was to assess the link between residential prenatal exposure to contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune between 1968 and 1985 and preterm birth, small for gestational age, term low birth weight and mean birth weight deficit. During the study, ATSDR used birth certificates to identify mothers living at Camp Lejeune at delivery and analyzed the entire pregnancy and individual trimesters.
