4.2 Diseases and Mutations caused by Agent Orange

The Veterans Administration identifies diseases linked as presumptive to exposure to Agent Orange and other herbicides.

Recently, the VA only lists spina bifida (except spina bifida occulta), a defect in the developing fetus that results in incomplete closing of the spine, as associated with Veterans’ exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides and certain birth defects in children of women Veterans associated with their military service in Vietnam, but are not related to herbicide exposure.

What is shocking is that the children of Vietnam veterans are also dying of cancers and other diseases associated with dioxin exposures.  None of these innocent children took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
