The Facts: Sad But True.
- 18- to 22-million gallons of Herbicide were sprayed across South Vietnam during the war.
- Many Vietnam Veterans are passing away prematurely or becoming seriously ill due to exposure of this herbicide.
- Many of these veterans have voiced concerns about their offspring suffering birth defects and unexplained illnesses.
- The U.S. Government refuses to fund research for Veterans’ children suffering with debilitating birth defects and unexplained illnesses while other countries like Vietnam and Australia do research to find answers.
The United States Government’s Stance?
The government currently acknowledges 18+ birth defects in children of FEMALE Vietnam Veterans only. The government claims these defects were caused by the female Veteran’s service in Vietnam and not an herbicide. The government acknowledges only one type of birth defect in the children of MALE Veterans – spina bifida. However, this excludes the Occulta type.
