The Agent Orange Curse has caused many veterans of the Vietnam war to die from cancer and other diseases that they got from the toxic defoliant Agent Orange. However, since the Vietnam war ended, the nightmare is not yet over, this comes after research revealed that grandchildren and children, who were in fact never exposed to the pesticide, have been affected by birth defects that were inherited from their parents and grandparents genes.
The Agent Orange curse caused much more detriment than cancer, including conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, heart disease, spinal problems, inflammatory bowel disease, and defects during birth such as missing limbs, malformed limbs, extra limbs, speech difficulties, crooked fingers and cleft lip palate. Unfortunately, instead of the US government intervening, they're busy trying to cover-up, as they hope that the vets would die and the whole issue will vanish, unfortunately that's not the case. The vets believe that billions of dollars are at stake and that's why their concerns have not been addressed by the US government and Veterans Affairs.
The fact that compensating veterans who have health problems that were caused by the haphazard spreading of the toxic herbicide in Vietnam will cost tens of billions of dollars a year, add to that the vets kids and grandkids who inherited the health problems, these kids are growing up with terrible medical conditions that are getting worse by the day. Once the link between Agent Orange and the conditions facing Vets children, the US government will have to incur additional billions for the damage.
Agent Orange has been identified as the main reason why the VA and the military have ignored these legitimate claims. The military and the VA have been dependent on one chemical-industry shill's assessment of whether Agent Orange caused health detriment to our vets. Alvin L. Young was the head of the government sanctioned plan to destroy evidence that linked between aircrafts that spread agent orange and the vets' illnesses, he was also tasked with warding off journalists that enquired into the investigations of the controversial issue.
The U.S. Department of Veterans and Military Affairs has terribly failed by relying on Young, as expert and consultant in their mass denial of benefits and compensation to the thousands of soldiers, their children and grandchildren too. The hard truth is that Agent Orange herbicides were very destructive so fatal that they could burn foliage and bushes where the enemy was hiding, the U.S. went to greater lengths by poisoning streams, waterways and rivers to unleash terror.
