Marine Corps' Camp Lejeune Water Contamination – Male Breast Cancer

North Carolina Marine corps base – Camp Lejeune was contaminated with a toxic brew of industrial chemicals
including trichloroethylene, or TCE a known human carcinogen according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Despite repeated warnings, the Marine Corps leadership took no action to protect their Marines and their families.
Worse yet, many still remain unaware of their exposures. Today, Camp Lejeune has the shameful distinction of being
the largest male breast cancer cluster ever identified – 73 men – and families who lived and worked on the base are
suffering from various rare cancers, chronic disease and birth defects.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Functional Wellness held a donation based informational talk about Gluten.
All donations were sent to the local Shaw Regional Cancer Center for the Pink October theme.
