  1. It might also be useful to know the every two years publication of veterans and Agent Orange from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. These books contain very many references to the published literature and to make an effort to evaluate the quality of the published data. The Veterans Administration also basis some of its compensation policy on these reports.

    The book called dioxins and health including other persistent organic pollutants and endocrine disruptors, third edition published by Wiley and edited by Arnold Schecter contains one chapter, chapter 15, and Agent Orange: health and environmental issues in Vietnam Cambodia and Laos written by Susan Hammond and Arnold Schecter and can be a useful review of Agent Orange in Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries. The book should be available by interlibrary loan.

    To find a listing of all articles published by Schecter and colleagues on dioxins and Agent Orange a Google search will provide a list of these publications. They are easiest to obtain by then doing a Google search for the individual publications or performing a pub med free search for the publications. This listing should include over 100 articles published by Arnold Schecter and his colleagues.
