NAPLES, Italy — Navy officials hosted the first of two open houses Wednesday, providing information on findings from the Naples Public Health Evaluation to the handful of attendees who trickled in.

The 2,700-page report of the 10-month initial phase details information on chemicals and bacteria found in more than one-third of the off-base homes tested, with traces of the dry-cleaning solvent tetrachloroethene, fecal and total coliforms, and nitrates responsible for the majority of the associated risks, experts said.

The study, which started in January 2008, looks at potential health risks posed by decades of illegal trash-burning, dumping of toxic waste, garbage collection strikes and numerous reports of rising cancer rates and respiratory problems.
