Conspiracy theory[edit]

Moved to talk page:

Possible note: Biological warfare center, with the recent expansion and recommisioning of Fort Detrick, the Biological warfare center has been listed as a potential concentration camp.

Please provide a source. thanks. Travb (talk) 04:22, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Unlikely -- real contingency plans for handling plague infected foreigners would like take the form of fatal airliner crashes with lots of flames...BaWaHaHaHa.
Come on. If you are going to create conspiracy theories you need to be more creative. This just relabels ordinary potential measures for quarantine and research on new plagues with a bad word. I mean where else would the USA have facilities for treating and researching a cure? You at least need to take some photos of Fredrick Maryland city limits signs being replaced with "Raccoon City" signs.

Propose adding text on National Research Council Report[edit]

Hi, I'd like to add a paragraph to the "post-cold war" section that discusses a recent National Research Council report about the possible toxic effects from past environmental contamination at Fork Detrick.

In 2012 the United States National Research Council published a report that reviewed two investigations of potential health hazards at Fort Detrick: a 2009 public health assessment conducted by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and a cancer investigation in Frederick County by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Frederick County Health Department [1].
The report found the two studies are unable to demonstrate whether people were harmed by groundwater contaminated with toxic pollutants from Area B of Fort Detrick. Furthermore, it is unlikely that additional studies could establish a link, because data on early exposures were not collected and cannot be obtained or reliably estimated now.

I'd appreciate any comments or edits. Earlgrey101 (talk) 16:43, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

1985 incident[edit]

i'm watching the bourne legacy and rachel weisz's charcter briefly mentions this incident... is this the same fort? should it be mentioned in this article? (i don't mean the brief mention in bourne)
