The United States Armed Forces are the military forces of the United States of America. The president of the United States is the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces and forms military policy with the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), both federal executive departments, acting as the principal organs by which military policy is carried out.
The United States military is one of the biggest polluters on earth, with more impact than 140 countries combined. It is the biggest consumer of fossil fuels on the planet when looking by organization; it spends $20.2 billion annually on air conditioning (!) in Iraq and Afghanistan alone, according to estimates by Pentagon officials.
According to an EPA list, almost 900 of the nearly 1,200 Superfund sites across the United States are abandoned military facilities or locations that were used to support military needs. One such base, Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, was held accountable for the contamination of the area’s groundwater. The military base was deemed responsible for dumping a large amount of carcinogens in the groundwater between 1953 and 1987. But only in February 2018 the federal government allowed affected individuals to file for official compensation claims.
In war zones the US military has been using depleted uranium against enemy forces and burn pits to get rid of all material. Both have serious, understated health impacts on soldiers, environment (even globally) and population.

|Toxoplasma gondii||“You want to know something terrifying? Here's something terrifying and not surprising. The U.S. military knows about Toxo and its effect on behavior. They're interested in Toxo. They're officially intrigued. An I would think they would be intrigued, studying a parasite that makes mammals perhaps do things that everything in their fiber normally tells them not to do because it's dangerous. But suddenly, with this parasite on board, the mammal is a little more likely to go and do it. Who knows? But they're aware of Toxo.”||Professor in neurology and neurosurgery Robert Sapolsky||2 December 2009|
