Could the exposure to these chemicals (TCE,PCE,Vinyl Chloride, and others listed below)be the source of his illnesses?

Posted by aandbz

My husband was stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune NC from 1979-1982. The water supply was contaminated with 70 VOCs including TCE, PCE, toluene,lead, and vinyl chloride. My husband has kidney disease(FSGS), Lung disease,  muscular degeneration, nerve damage through out his entire body, degenerating discs, serpentine scoliosis, severe pain throughout the body, tremors, severe hearing loss,dermatitis, high blood pressure, high triglycerides,  ect. There is no family history of these problems. He also lost two children during this time to sever birth defects (anecephaly, intestinal pneuminitis, and spina bifida. We have discovered that the ATSDR has associated their deaths with the toxic chemicals on the base.

I too have FSGS and believe it to be related to being exposed to toluene. Your husband and I share similar symptoms with no family history of this illness. Your on the right track.
