a normal life their deformities physical signs of human decay and although their parents were not even born until after the vietnam war eighteen million gallons of the toxic herbicides sprayed through the jungles of south vietnam is still penetrating the d.n.a. of those being born today manmade marion said the baked into still alive are suffering. illness of cancers the u.s. government has acknowledged agent orange is directly connected to the health ailments and defects that continue to plague the lives of vietnam war veterans for generations to come but the u.s. has worst used to make the same length for the millions of the enemies of war victims whose lives have been devastated as a result of agent orange they say that it has nothing to do with agent orange. i think that the u.s. for a minute has the reason to deny it. which is why delegations are here in washington following a report issued by lawmakers scientists and doctors calling on the u.s.

government but it could ease the pain the u.s. has been ignoring since it dumped a month sent to manufactured agent orange in these jungles. washington d.c. . from the campaign group vietnam agent orange reef so is the use of chemicals during the vietnam war was responsible for an ongoing monetary crisis and that vietnamese victims should continue to fight for justice and compensation well dioxin is unfortunately the chemical that keeps on killing their oxen is probably the most toxic substance known to science and so there's a number of ways that people have young people who weren't even born during the war have been affected one is they may live in a park the cops part so that you can fish they thought well they get in the water but the even more common way is that it gets transmitted genetically through the fatty tissue with a number of years ago of course it took some time for people to figure out what was going on then the u.s.
2:05 am
for trans had to fight for justice in compensation and they're still fighting in other children and grandchildren beginning to fight and i think there's been a great amount of understanding and mutual assistance and sympathy between the u.s. what was exposed and the vietnamese people exposed so we just sent a veterans delegation there's been a lot of projects going back and forth and i think for the sort of humanitarian toll of the fact that the american public health association in two thousand and seven passed a policy statement saying this is a public health crisis that lawmakers are going to vietnam church people are going to vietnam veterans have been going for a long time that principle. taking the lead and making a statement that this is something the fact we have to solve the other we're trying to achieve justice for agent orange victims in vietnam clean up of the land systems for the children and grandchildren of u.s. vets still suffering from agent orange and for the forgotten population the vietnamese american kids and grandkids whose parents fought on the u.s. side but have been completely abandoned so we're here to talk to our legislators to
