The impact of health issues on the nation’s
veterans will in time confront our children and grandchildren in the
form of genetically modified organisms (GMO).
greatest threat to public health is genetically modified organism (GMO)
plant production by Monsanto Company (Agent Orange and Bt cotton) and
Pfizer, Inc. (Zyklon B. Holocaust gas). Both have research facilities in
the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta to produce GMO’s.
nation’s veterans suffered from the impact of Agent Orange for years
before the Veterans Administration acknowledged causation of toxic
exposure to dioxin, a defoliant used in Vietnam to kill the jungle like
conditions that provided cover for the enemy. The herbicide utilized two
chemicals--2, 4-D and 2, 4, 5-T that was linked to a variety of health
disorders: headaches, liver and blood disorders, nerve damage, cancer.
we know that veterans, who served in Vietnam and were exposed to Agent
Orange, had their DNA mutated by exposure to herbicides, and unknowingly
passed on genetic mutations to their unborn. Interesting enough the
male and female veterans may have children born with spina bifida, but
the woman veteran exposed to dioxin may have child with a whole host of
different medical conditions supporting genetic mutation.
this history now well defined the Agent Orange Benefits Act, was passed
in 1996 to provide benefits for Vietnam veterans’ children who were
born with spina bifida, as a result of Agent Orange exposure.
