Subject: [CPEO-MEF] VOCs, HEALTH: Critique to NRC Committee Camp Lejeune report - water modeling
This is from the web site of the Georgia Tech Multimedia Environmental Simulations Laboratory http://mesl.ce.gatech.edu/

Flawed NRC Report misrepresents the Findings of the ATSDR Study:

The Camp Lejeune, NC site is being studied by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, CDC (ATSDR/CDC) to identify if there were historical exposure to contaminated water at the site. For more details of this study you may visit the ATSDR web site to download the reports published by ATSDR and other facts of this health effects study.

More recently, the National Research Council (NRC) was requested to conduct a review of the ATSDR study on Camp Lejeune by the Department of Navy, under a mandate by the U.S. Congress (Public Law 109-364, Section 318). The NRC report was released on Saturday July 13, 2009. You may download the report here: (NRC 2009).

A review of this report [by Mustafa Aral] indicate that scientific findings of the ATSDR study on Camp Lejeune, NC, are misrepresented and mischaracterized in the NRC 2009 report. Download the critique of the NRC 2009 report [from http://mesl.ce.gatech.edu/ARAL_Review_2009.pdf], and reach your own conclusions about the case.
