Agent Orange: "Collateral Damage" In Viet Nam - The Digital Journalist: "My initial motivation for spending 22 years engrossed in this subject has to do with witnessing a staggering human tragedy unfold. In many ways the sad and terrible Viet Nam war has become a war without end.... The US did not drop Agent Orange to produce deformed babies - it was simply meant to kill vegetation. The Dioxin was an accidental by-product. This gives America a perfect excuse to be magnanimous towards the victims.... Each and every person on the planet now has this deadly chemical [dioxin] in their bodies, mostly from industrial pollution and the embrace of plastics by society. Even the EPA declares that a quarter of all cancers in America are caused by Dioxin."
