Dioxin - this information is a must for every Vietnam Veteran

Most of us are aware that the dioxin, TCDD was a by-product of the manufacturing of the Agent Orange herbicides. Some of us are aware that the dioxin levels in the Agent Orange herbicides could vary up to a 1,000 time what one would have found in the commercial herbicides.

Linda Birnbaum, is a well respected expert on dioxins. She is also the Director of National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

If you only watch one video this year, this video on dioxin is a must. Don't miss it.


  1. Not just Vietnam and southeast Asia veterans may be at risk. Others serving in CONUS may be at risk also?

  2. The result of using Agent Orange (80 million litres) on areas of South Vietnam by US Forces, has gone beyond the shores of the country, into the bodies of those who served in that horrific war.

    In addition to near four million Vietnamese suffering from its effects, and the thousands of areas of forests destroyed, the land itself was, and remains poisoned.

    Yet the US government, the US chemical companies such as Monsanto, Dow etc refuse to accept responsibility or pay any compensation to the Vietnamese. What a difference when a BP oil well leaks, Obama Demands and forces BP to set-aside $20 billion to compensate those affected. Usual US double-standard.
