Today, millions of Vietnamese suffer the effects of chemical defoliants used by the United States during the Vietnam War. Agent Orange, which contains dioxin (one of the deadliest substances known to science), continues to cause death and sickness to millions of Vietnamese and many U.S. veterans.
More than thirty years after the war, Agent Orange remains in areas of the land and water of Vietnam, causing horrific birth defects to several generations of children.
