Toxic chemicals can be a threat to your health, but what it does to your immune system can be worse. In times of COVID-19 the consideration for what contaminated water on bases is doing to military personnel and their family is extremely important. Toxins in the water can make someone more susceptible to COVID-19 and its complications, according to the Environmental Working Group.
