New free release: Post-Vietnam Dioxin Exposure in Agent Orange-Contaminated C-123 Aircraft


Agent Orange and C-123

Free download (120 pages)

The VA ordered this study and it is now available as a free download (pdf link)–or it can be read online. In short, the findings state: 

“Post-Vietnam Dioxin Exposure rejects the idea that the dioxin residues detected on interior surfaces of the C-123s were immobile and effectively inaccessible to the Reservists as a source of exposure. Accordingly, this report states with confidence that the Air Force Reservists were exposed when working in the Operation Ranch Hand C-123s and so experienced some increase in their risk of a variety of adverse responses.”

This study was authored by:

Committee to Evaluate the Potential Exposure of Agent Orange/TCDD Residue and Level of Risk of Adverse Health Effects for Aircrew of Post-Vietnam C-123 Aircraft; Board on the Health of Select Populations; Institute of Medicine

    Now we need them to prove that the jetguns were, in fact, responsible for transferring the Hep-C and the roses will bloom brightly.
