U.S. Air Force refuses to study chemical's effects to please Pease victims
PORTSMOUTH — A federal agency's director said there should be national health study for PFC exposure in people who lived near the Pease Air Force Base, according to Seacoastonline.
The agency that would complete the study, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry asked the Air Force to pay for the cost. However, the Air Force said they can not and will not fund the study due to legal reasons.
The city and the Air Force believe the contamination in the area could be from the use of firefighting foam at the base.
