Burn Pits Research Published in the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine.

We are thrilled to announce that the Burn Pit 360 research team's latest article has been published in the the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine.

In this study, we focused on a cohort of Veterans who reported a startling 29% rate of gross hematuria. The population we studied was exposed to carcinogens via military burn pits, highlighting a critical issue that demands our attention.

Our findings demonstrate a compelling correlation between exposure to carcinogens, particularly in burn pits, and the development of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) among Veterans. This connection underscores the importance of remaining vigilant and initiating early screening measures for bladder cancer in our Veteran community.

It is crucial that we emphasize the significance of a thorough work-up for both LUTS and hematuria in these cases. Individual evaluations should take into account the potential occupational exposure to carcinogens, especially in Veterans who may have come into contact with burn pits during their service.

By increasing awareness and understanding of these occupational hazards, we can better support our Veterans and provide them with the necessary resources and screenings to detect and address potential health issues in a timely manner.

We want to express my gratitude to all the Veterans who participated in this study, as well as to the dedicated team of researchers and healthcare professionals who tirelessly contributed to its success. Together, we are making significant strides towards improving the health and well-being of our Veterans.

If you'd like to learn more about our research and the implications it has for the Veteran community, we invite you to read the full article in the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine. Your support and interest in this crucial work are greatly appreciated.
