Children's Centers To Study Prenatal Effects of Dioxins

The children of Vietnam veterans are the largest living laboratory for studying the possible adverse reproductive outcomes of their parent(s)' exposures to dioxins. Data collection on thousands of cases of children reported by their parents to the National Birth Defect Registry suggests a pattern of adverse outcomes that includes increases in learning, attention, immune and endocrine disorders. Creating a NIEHS center(s) to study these reproductive outcomes could contribute to a valuable database of knowledge on the reproductive effects of dioxins that would be applicable to exposures in the civilian environment.

With best regards,

  1. I asked the VA shrink, and other V.A. doctors if my sons A.D.D could be a result of A.O, they all said no way. Just like every other thing that leads to A.O.
