The scientific evidence that Dioxins are transmitted intergenerationally via sperm.
This information is of critical interest to all veterans exposed to dioxins and chemicals as well as farmers and fruit growers using the dioxins listed in this article.
Dioxin (TCDD) Induces Epigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance of Adult Onset Disease and Sperm Epimutations
Mohan Manikkam, Rebecca Tracey, Carlos Guerrero-Bosagna, Michael K. Skinner*
Environmental compounds can promote epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult-onset disease in subsequent generations following ancestral exposure during fetal gonadal sex determination. The current study examined the ability of dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo[p]
provide potential epigenetic biomarkers for transgenerational disease and ancestral environmental exposures. Observations demonstrate dioxin exposure of a gestating female promotes epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult onset disease and sperm epimutations.

As many of you will know I have asserted this for many years yet the government continually denies any knowledge or interest. My own PhD explored the likelihood of this in Australian Vietnam Vets. Seems I was right.
I have sent a copy to DVA. Please forward a copy to you local member and all you believe would benefit from this information.

You should not have to be part of research study program to prove your point about your disabilities or deformities……You need to make up your mind was that agent orange an act of crime and a war crime committed on innocent soldiers and families. I am a Vietnam Veteran and I have seen my mates suffer and die young. I also suffered for 25 years. Ay my time of discharge after two tours of duty our Army doctor advised me I was not permitted to donate blood to Red Cross for Ten years. Those ten years ended up for 25 years of hell. I am willing to lead this journey to prosecute the Australian and New Zealand Governments for authorising, supplying and spraying that toxic dioxin stuff in our living and work environment…….
I am the daughter of a Vietnam Veteran and I am living with Aplastic Anemia, bone marrow failure disease. I also have hip deformities and had a hysterectomy at age 35 due to multiple fibroid cysts in my uterus. I am willing to participate in studies regarding birth defects in children of Vietnam Veterans. Please feel free to contact me asap. Thank you.
